Birmingham Nature Centre by Karen Strunks

 Who wouldn’t want to meet this handsome fella? Pop along to Birmingham Nature Centre and you can meet all his friends too! It’s a great family day out and there are lots of wonderful photo opportunities there, but good luck trying to get a glimpse of the elusive red pandas.  The meerkats are particularly entertaining, especially around feeding time.

It’s open every day of the year and there is a small admission charge, but if you are a senior citizen, student or Passport to Leisure holders you get a discount and children under 5 enter free.

The Nature Center is just two miles from Birmingham City Centre. Buses 45 & 47 run past it, and there is car parking too (via the Midlands Arts Centre).

Grab your coat and scarf and friends and family and enjoy an afternoon with some wonderful furry, and not so furry creatures.

Have a great weekend :)
