It was a bit of a cold grey Saturday, but we thought we would try Thorp Perrow. It's a stately home, but you can't go in the house, only the gardens. They are quite good, lot's of different walks in different styles. The highlight though is the aviary. Lot's of birds of prey that they bring out a few times each day to meet the crowd and do a flying display. Oh yes, and the coffee shop...2 words...Hot Chocolate!.
