Where can I see wildlife in Leicestershire?
Home to over 250 exotic birds from all over the world, and nestled in the outskirts of a quiet village, Tropical Birdland is a great way to spend the day with family or friends. The birds are extremely friendly and have been known to frequently land on visitors’ shoulders (particularly on those who have food!). The centre houses the birds in a 65-acre woodland space, so all birds feel at home and have enough space to spread their wings and take flight as they would anywhere else. If you’re feeling peckish, there’s also a restaurant to grab a bite to eat and relax with a coffee.
