A brilliant site. We saw more birds in one afternoon than in several visits to our local wetlands, A fox darted across our feet on our way back from a hide. And comedian Bill Bailey was in the cafe.

This is a beautiful outdoor attraction which looks after a variety of wildlife, mostly birds. The price is reasonable considering you can spend hours here walking around - plus you are supporting conservation

Quite expensive at PSG 14/- but worthy and a great place for a day out. This place is good for bird watchers, nature lovers, children. A quite and calm place to spend time after few days of activities in busy London City.
