Abbotsbury Swannery , Abbotsbury Reviews

  • This was a great visit with the kids and we combined it with a visit to the play farm and also the tropical gardens on a family ticket which was good value. TIP ; Park at the Swannery and go there first as parking is free and you can walk up to the play farm from there (600 metres). Parking at play farm is charged for even if you have ticket. We got there just at Swan feeding time and this was great for the kids (and me ;-) ) It was nesting time when we went but the birds were not aggressive at all even though we were walking right past their nests. Staff were very friendly and the cafe is a nice little pit stop for a few treats.

  • Well worth a visit. A beautiful setting and, obviously, hundreds of swans - many more than I was expecting! At Easter the swans are starting to nest in preparation for egg laying and then... baby swans! I can't wait to revisit in Knee and see the signets. If you time your visit right you can feed the swans (by flinging grain into the water!) so check the website. Nice gift shop too...

  • I’ve been here a few times and it is an enjoyable visit. The ideal time to go is probably in May when there are quite a few new hatchlings being looked after by their very protective parents. Feeding time is really good fun to watch and there are certainly lots of swans to see. Easy to park and not to far from other tourist attractions.

  • Had a wonderful time at the swannery on a grey day. Well worth a visit particularly for children. Visit slightly spoilt by the cafe and what it had to offer and how it was served. Shame. Filled in comment sheet and then could find nowhere to post it so was advised by staff to "leave it on the counter"

  • Really really nice place. Especially enjoyed the talk and the fact that they got the visitors involved in the feed. Really nice visit. Would have been five stars if the cafe had been better. Poor selection and high prices.
