We have been to the otter centre before but each time we go, we learn something new. It was raining today but the talks about the birds of prey and otters were fab. Fantastic place to visit and the lunch was so good.

Great value for money day out with detailed informative talks if you wish to listen and the chance to get up close and personal to the wallabies and deer. The cafe also does food which is basic but very nice. Will be visiting again.

Really good, very good talks about the otters. The bird of prey talk was excellent and it was good to be able to hold the large birds (with glove on). Saw wallabies and deer roaming free on the walk through the woods. Will go again

Brilliant price! We showed up at 11.15 and was in time to see the talks about the birds of prey and the otters. Lots to see, not just otters too! The staff were very helpful and informative too. Definitely recommend

We visited the Tamar Otter Centre on 31 August when the weather was a bit mixed and we were surfed out. 2 adults, 2 thirteen year-olds and an eleven year-old had a very nice time indeed for 3 hours. The otters are cute and charming,...More

Ha! Otters look very cute but I'm sure they could rip your face off! You can let raptors perch on your arm though, magnificent.
