Attraction in Launceston
The Tamar Otter & Wildlife Centre has over 19 acres of landscaped
grounds set in a tranquil and natural atmosphere for you to explore and
enjoy including two waterfowl lakes and a woodland walk.
Originally owned by the Otter Trust the centre is now under new ownership.
As you walk around the "wildwood" you will come across Fallow, Muntjac deer and wallabies roaming freely among the trees. There are aviaries with different species of owls for you to see. The British and Asian Short Clawed Otters are in enclosures that allow you to watch them at close quarters. The Otters are fed at 12 noon and 3pm; this is accompanied by a very informative talk which should not be missed by visitors.
After a walk visit the tea room which has a large selection of items cooked on the premises for you to choose from, whether it's for lunch, afternoon tea or a coffee break you will be made to feel very welcome.
Months Open: 1 Apr (or Good Friday, if earlier)-31 Oct, daily 1030-1800.
