I regularly take my grandchildren here in the Summer. It is a great place to play and socialise. The food is good and the views of the countryside are lovely. They even provide binoculars to view the birds feeding more clearly.

This wildlife centre came near the end of one of our sections of the "London Loop". We enjoyed reasonably priced drinks and cake, whilst sitting on a very comfortable sofa. It was good to have a comfort break also, using the facilities.
