Lotherton Hall & bird garden is an amazing day out. It has something for everyone in the family. From two kids play areas to the historically restored and preserved house, to the Deer Park and a walk in the forest, or maybe the tranquil gardens....More

We have been going to Lotherton for many years now and it’s getting better every year. It used to be cheaper to use but didn’t have the events and the improved bird garden. They call it a wildlife centre because it has a few other...More
