Whether you’re a bird lover or you need to find a great place to take the kids, Tropical Birdland has everything you need for a fun filled day out for all the family. Located in Desford, Leicestershire, Tropical Birdland can be reached by car, hired coach or hired minibus and boasts several acres of beautiful wildlife filled with aviaries, an outdoor picnic area and children’s play area.
Park founder Richard Hopper started his bird collection in 1974 when he sold his first drum kit and decided to turn his passion into a business in 1984, where the park opened its doors to visitors for the first time. Success of the park ensured that the aviaries were subsequently expanded, with seating areas and cafes added to make the park more family friendly.
Take a look through the amazing aviaries to see a wide range of avian life, including free flying birds that glide around the entire local area to return back to the park at night. Tropical Birdland also helps private breeding programs in order to help preserve endangered species such as the Hyacinth Macaw.
The children’s outdoor play area is also a great place to take the kids after a day of learning, which continues to be a resounding success with children of all ages. Why not visit this weekend!
