Birmingham Nature Centre
Located on the Pershore Road, two miles south of Birmingham City Centre, the Birmingham Nature Centre homes a wide range of animals, both European and from across the world.
These animals include many charismatic and exciting species like meerkats, lemurs and otters. The Centre has a wide collection of endangered reptiles, and it plays an important role in international breeding programmes for them.
The Nature Centre is gradually changing its focus from a collection of various animals to housing endangered species and focusing on animal conservation and captive breeding programmes. This will give people a chance to see an increasing amount of rare and exotic species in Birmingham.
Whether you are interested in animal conservation or just having a fun day out with the family, the Birmingham Nature Centre offers something for everyone. Come and see the exciting and fun animals. We're nearer than you think!

Access also available through MAC (Midlands Art Centre), entrance off Edgbaston Road- suitable for disabled visitors.
