We accessed the World of Birds via the hop on and off bus. It had a good selection of birds that appeared to be well provided for. The birds came from around the world. I didn't spend much time with the monkeys but others in our group enjoyed them. It's worth the visit.

Never been so close to birds and an interesting collection. Good value and can spend hours walking through cages of birds.

The name says it all - lots of birds! Lovely aviaries to walk through so you can really get close and personal with the birds. Highlight was the squirrel monkey enclosure. They are the most gentle creatures and having them it on your arm or shoulder is just awesome. Make sure you time your visit when the enclosure is open.

Great variety of birds from Africa but also from Asia, North and South America. Interesting network of pathways - they pack in a lot in a small area.

Enjoyed this yesterday with our little one. We were very early in the morning so there was no one yet. They have so much doors between the species to separate them which is not superhandy but thats our problem obviously. Many many species of birds, I loved the birds of pray and the inimini tiny monkeys. My son liked the... More

Hopped off the city tour bus to whizz around this place and rather enjoyed it. Worth a visit (included on the Iventure card)

Well worth a visit. You can get very close to some amazing birds. Many have been handed in by people no longer wanting them. Some are very tame and want attention. Some talk to you as you pass by. Some have injuries but are in a safe place and alive. A sanctury that you can easily spend a few hours... More

This was a rainy day activity for us, and it was nice to wander around looking at the birds, many of which are not behind a cage. The real attraction however is the monkey enclosure, where squirrel monkeys will climb onto you in every which way - it's pure awesomeness.

Personally am not keen on our feathered friends. However Mr Reingold and friends have done a sterling job with rescuing and rehabilitating stray birds.
