This is one of the most fascinating places to visit although sometimes a little disturbing seeing all of the beautiful and some HUGE beasts of prey permanently “frozen” through the practice of taxidermy. I’m happy that my friends knew to search it out. Glad I...More

Taxidermy and entomology fans, this is for you. Stuffed animals and birds in every corner. And a brilliant collection of insects, beetles and butterflies - all shapes, sizes and colours. Highly recommended.

This quirky shop is like entering a museum. Over two levels it has this amazing collection of exotic taxidermy, entomology, and natural history specimens. As well as a fascinating range of books and posters. And oddly a selection gardening tools and gloves. If you are...More
