The Visitor Centre

The Visitor Centre exists in a small, peaceful and secluded site, surrounded by beautiful mature trees, nestled beside Webb's (of Hagley) Garden Centre. Access to the Visitor Centre is through the Garden Centre main entrance and out to outdoor plant section.

As well as adding many more birds to the team, there have been many improvements to the centre in recent years. We have rebuilt all of our aviaries to make them larger. We have been adding landscaped gardens to make the Visitor Centre more attractive. There are concrete pathways throughout the Visitor Centre to make it fully accessible for wheelchairs and pushchairs. We have an established wildlife and fish pond and a seating area for visitors to enjoy a picnic and/or watch our daily flying displays.
