Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Had a fantastic visit for a meerkat encounter. In a small group of 8 people, we all sat in the enclosure with the meerkats running around our feet while Ben introduced the meerkats and told us about them. Then it was feeding time and the meerkats jumped up on our laps to get the food. At the end Ben was very patient answering all our questions. Wonderful experience for anyone who loves meerkats. Definitely recommend!

I purchased the Walk with a Hawk for my husband as part of our first wedding anniversary. We were wonderfully greeted through the door and led straight out through the falconry centre to meet Echo, the Harris Hawk we would be walking for the next 40 minutes. We didn't know how far we would walk and although it was a short walk, it was highly engaging and a fantastic experience. Echo is a beautiful bird whom we got to hold and see up close. He flew a countless number of times for us and it was magical to see him in flight across the walk. We were sad to come to the end of the experience but we would love to do it all over again. As part of the experience, we also got access to the rest of the centre for the whole day - we went round at least twice and saw three bird displays and talks. Each member of staff knew so much about each of the birds that they were bringing out and told us some interesting facts we did not know. I would certainly recommend visiting, and if you are able to, go on one of the experiences that they offer.

Had a great time wandering around and seeing all the different animals, did meet the meerkats and loved it . The very informative guide was a good host. But the meerkats were the stars .
Will definitely be booking to come back again with more people.

An excellent day at the centre despite the grey and rainy weather. We had an hours owling experience with Katie and it was SO much fun, amazing to be so close to the owls and learn so much about them and their personalities! The earlier flying display that we also caught was fantastic as well and definitely worth the damp bottom (top tip - bring a bin bag to sit on if it’s damp!)

It’s really great to see the centre is doing so well and now expanding to add in more animals and areas, I’m excited to go back and see what happens next.

My wife bought me this experience for our anniversary as she knows I'm absolutely obsessed with racoons. We turned up at 10.30am ready to meet Ben the trainer and guide. Ben was absolutely brilliant, he made it exciting and educational. You could definitely tell that he absolutely loves the animals and his job. I couldn't recommend this experience enough. The rest of the animal sanctuary is really good as well, all different types of birds, meerkats etc. There's a crazy golf course which we all love and lots of little boutique shops. A great family day out for all ages.

Had a breakfast in the garden centre restaurant. Was excellent. Scones & coffee went down a treat. Had a nice day finished by a walk to see the animals in Millets park. They had a big wheel & horses merry go round for the kids.

My partner bought me an owl experience at Millets as a surprise for our anniversary. I had no idea what it was.

Most experiences I've seen or been to are fairly short events but this was anything but. We had the opportunity to meet and greet several birds including an in enclosure encounter with two burrowing owls and several flying experiences. I even had the opportunity to be one of, if not the, first public experience with a juvenile owl newly trained.

Katie was incredible and knowledgeable, fun and engaging without overloading us. Honestly this is one of the best animal experiences I've ever done.

I cannot recommend this enough.

I booked a raccoon experience for my son, and as an accompanying adult I got to play with them too! Although legislation now states we weren't allowed to touch them, we were given treats and toys to play with them so had a fully interactive experience for 25 minutes. Raccoons are so clever! Alissa, our raccoon expert, was so lovely. Really enthusiastic and knowledgeable and obviously cares so much for the three adorable and cheeky raccoons - and all raccoons in general! After our experience we watched the birds of prey flying display which was also amazing. All the staff seemed to really care for the animals and know their characteristics well. There were lots of other animals and birds to see, including a butterfly area to walk through where little finches were also flying freely about. All this was included in the price of the raccoon experience. The receptionist was also really helpful and friendly when I rang up to clarify details before our visit and also when we arrived. I am very impressed with this place!

Took my Dad for a Hawk and Owl experience for his Birthday. He's always had a fascination with Birds so the opportunity to get up close with Falcons, Hawks and Owls was a great experience for him.
Our Falconer, Katie, was relatively new to the centre but her knowledge and passion for the birds was apparent and she took the time to educate us and answer all the questions posed.
Flying the Birds was a wonderful experience. Really enjoyed the afternoon. Thank you

We had a lovely experience with the meerkat’s, the keeper (sorry can’t remember her name, such a lovely lady) was very informative and gave us so much interesting facts about the meerkats. It was lovely to hear someone so passionate about their job and the animals their care for. Allow additional time to look around the birds of prey, sadly we didn’t have time to wait for the birds of prey show. Would recommend.
