If you are looking for a fun day out for all of the family, then Birdworld is for you, set in 26 acres of parkland at Farnham in Surrey. 

As you would expect there is a fabulous variety of birds living within the park.  A farm is also situated on-site and is home to many animals, including two reindeer.  Interestingly, an amazing Underwater World aquarium is part of Birdworld too.  Plant lovers will be delighted to know there is a very large garden centre to be explored.

Recommended are the Parrots in Flight aviary.  This is a firm favourite and include macaws, cockatoos, amazons, conjures and parakeets.  It is fascinating how the Amazon variety is an excellent mimic and children in particular will be excited to hear their name instantly recalled if the parrot takes a liking to it!

The Underwater World aquarium is awesome and houses a turtle, piranhas, dwarf crocodiles and stunning marine and tropical fish.

It is handy to know that children can let off steam at the various play areas located around the site and there is plenty of space around the park itself allowing exploration.

Birdworld is good value for money due to the variety of things to see and do.  It makes for a great family day out.
