Accessibility

We are a fully accessible attraction with many opportunities to see our birds up really close during a visit making it suitable as a day out for those with visual impairments and for visitors with wheelchairs or limited mobility.

We would like to advise visitors that we have a natural countryside setting and sensible footwear and appropriate clothing for outdoors are recommended. Most walkways are laid paths; however you may find some natural unevenness in the other areas within our grounds.

A carer accompanying a disabled visitor will be admitted free of charge, on request.  Supporting documentation should be provided, for example a current DLA letter. The normal admission or membership fee applies to the disabled visitor.

Wheelchair users
  • Free disabled parking at the main entrance (for blue badge holders)
  • Free entry for a designated carer
  • Free loan of manual wheelchairs (pre-booking advised)
  • Flat tarmac paths throughout the grounds
  • Plenty of benches for rest stops
  • Areas reserved for wheelchair users at our display grounds and viewing hides
  • Adapted toilets located in Feathers Restaurant
  • Dogs are not permitted except for assistance dogs.  If you would like to visit with an assistance dog, please call in advance so that we can arrange for a member of our team to meet you on your arrival to advise how to make the most of your day while keeping our birds comfortable.
