Lovely day out. Very reasonably priced. Good attraction overall. Don't eat in the coffee shopping poor food unfortunately. Price reflects the quality. Good playground for bigger children aged 4 n above. There's an open area at the end where u can feed n pet the birds.

Lots of birds and a chance to get close and personal by feeding the very people-friendly birds. A bit noisy but that's parrots for you! Great for families with young children.

Brilliant place to take the children, will be returning again. It's got so much in to for small place the staff are great and it's so cheap, run by a charity I believe so they survive on donations. The little one loved feeding all the birds and holding them.

Thank you for visiting Tropical Birdland and for your review. We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your visit. You are correct in that we survive on donations and entrance fees from visitors but we are not a charity so we do not receive any charitable donations from the government or council or other bodies.

Lovely place for young and old. Some birds are in cages and some birds are free. The ones who are free come and sit on your shoulder. When you have finished, there is a restaurant and play area.

I took my two children to Tropical Birdland last summer. It was a warm day and I was looking for somewhere to go within Leicestershires borders. After seeing an advertisement for the place we decided to give it a go. It was brilliant, much more interesting than i thought it would be. I don't have any pets at home but... More

It's small, at this time of year it's muddy, it's in a tiny village a little off the beaten track for tourists but if you want to get up very close to a good number of parrots it's perfect. Don't go expecting some commercialised attraction, if you do feel you are in someone's back yard and they are simply showing... More

We took my nephew to tropical birdman on a whim. We have driven past the signs umpteen times but never thought of visiting. It's a real, ly good place, you get close to the birds and can even hold some of them. Most are kept in large enclosures and seem halthyvand happy. There is also a good play area. Perfect.

I don't know where to start. The first thing we saw when we parked up was a huge Macaw flying free over the car park. That's enough to get you excited. I'd definitely recommend buying bird feed. There are some black and white birds in the walk through aviary (the one with the pond) who will eat mealworms straight out... More

Scout troop came here as a last minute decision as planned activity had been cancelled. I think I can say safely say that all 18 scouts had a fantastic time, so wonderful to see that the birds are allowed to roam freely. A real hands on experience and safe to say that I will be back with the wife as... More

Many thanks for bringing the scouts to visit Tropical Birdland for the feedback. We are really pleased that you all enjoyed the day and that you got to meet our resident birds. Please do tell all your family and friends about us as all the proceeds from visitors goes right back into the upkeep and welfare of our birds. More
