Just finished the fantastic bird of experience as a treat for my husband's birthday - he had the most wonderful time flying Bud the hawk and meeting the owls. We will be recommending you to everyone we know!

Visited with three children 10 and under. Completely enjoyed walking round and seeing all the birds. All got feathers to take home. And seeing a tarantula was a bonus! Lovely cafe too.

We were able to hold the owls within the Falconry Centre after walking the Harris Hawk. We sat around talking to Mark and asked question about all the different owls, it was very educational and interesting.
