    Cannot recommend enough. Go do this.
    Absolutely exceptional afternoon out. Incredibly knowledgeable guide Incredible interactions with a range of owls We got to have them fly to us and feed them Ample opportunity to take incredible photos Cannot recommend this enough. We did get the tickets on a voucher site and at the price we paid leaving a donation felt very appropriate given the value for money. Thank you so much for such an interesting and beautiful few hours.

    Birthday treat
    Arranged a Bird of Prey experience for a birthday present. We all had an excellent time - even the spectators were able to get up close to the birds. The session was relaxed and informative, and Charlie was friendly and knowledgeable. A lovely memorable afternoon - highly recommend.

    Really fun and educational place
    Bought the Owl Experience package for my wife for Christmas... Always a safe bet for someone who loves Owls and wildlife in general .. I took photos and generally joined in, without the flying of the owls for £10 extra. This is an animal Sanctuary, specializing in Birds, and is not generally open to the public as a Zoo would be. However they make up for this by running a variety of 'Experiences' each tailored to your particular interests. The handlers are all extremely friendly and knowledgeable and give everyone plenty of individual time with the birds. Well worth a visit .. but booking is essential obviously.

Amazing birthday gift experience for my partner who loves birds and birds of prey. The day was thought out so well! You all join as a small group in a private area where a very knowledgeable bird keeper brings round different species of owls for you to hold while telling you all the facts about each breed. The birds are beautiful and kept impeccable. Clearly well cared for birds. You get to end the day but flying one to your hand. Greta for all ages, thoroughly fun and informative!

Brilliant time spent there with family, we thoroughly enjoyed it. From being able to hold the owls, seeing the various different types of owls and other animals, and the information on display was very interesting/informative.. The staff were very friendly and informative, answering all of our questions. I would thoroughly recommend it to other friends and family, well worth a visit.

Booked an Owl experience for my wife at Christmas. Kept in contact with centre to make sure visit date was ok. Very friendly emails. Arrived at venue at met promptly. 7 Owls waiting for from small to large. Host Leanne was extremely knowledgeable and friendly making visit even better. Plenty of time with Owls for photos. Great experience over 2 hours and 20 minutes. Will definitely return for another experience. Thanks and well done 👏👏👏

I visited the centre on Friday 27 January. Leah was a fantastic host. She was so informative and answered my (many) questions about the wonderful owls.
I thoroughly recommend a visit here to anyone who loves animals and cares for conservation.
