This is a must visit place - extremely friendly and knowledgable staff, stunning flying displays and a huge variety of birds to see, Add in the invaluable conservation work they do and it is hugely worthwhile supporting them.

A fabulous place to visit. Could stay all day easily, bird flight displays amusing and unexpected and all the birds were different every time. Would recommend highly. Please go, support the centre.

No, the proximity to the birds is such that there is too much risk of stress to the birds from dogs they are not familiar with. The staff are dog friendly, if you give them a call they can tell you what help they can offer... More
