    Totally Impressed
    60th Birthday gift, amazing day! Half Day Falconry Experience, one to one 3 hour adventure flying and handling a variety of six birds. Beautiful area, friendly and informative handlers, incredible, intelligent birds. Loved every minute. Even the wife managed to capture some outstanding photos. Highly recommend.

    Amazing
    I feel so privileged to have experienced the stunning owls and hawks on the half day experience. Everyone was so friendly and informative. Having Treacle sitting on my shoulder and head is something I will never forget. Hope to be back soon.

    Fantastic owl experience
    My partner and I took my Mum here for a 2 hour owl experience for her birthday. The staff were friendly and extremely knowledgeable. Birds were in beautiful condition and clearly well cared for and loved. Was a fantastic time and a lovely laid back experience. We were also lucky enough to meet the resident red iguana which topped off the experience for us. There's a lovely cafe round the corner, so it made for a fantastic time out as a family. Highly recommend and will definitely be going back again!

Yesterday afternoon I went with my daughter for the 'Raven Experience'. The weather was icy and cold but we barely noticed during the very generous hour we were out with Steve and three Ravens, Luna, Grip and six-month-old Rav. Steve was so friendly, knowledgeable and humorous and the bond between him and the birds was very obvious, though they are by no means cuddly pets! The ravens flew to our gloves, hopped around exploring and tried all they could to get to the grapes and cheese we'd brought. We never stopped laughing, and every one of our own photos shows us grinning like loons in sheer delight.
My daughter had booked it because they are our favourite birds and being up close with them only increased our awe and respect for these magnificent, smart and cheeky corvids.
It was probably one of my best birthday presents ever (out of 60 years' worth) and I would wholeheartedly recommend a trip to this super place.
We set off home with numb toes and wide smiles, and definitely want to go again, though we will wait till it's a little warmer...

Where do I start. What an amazing experience. My three daughters 17 and twins 11 had a fab time. The exotics were great fun and Jo was so knowledgeable and very kind. The birds were also wonderful. Our man was fantastic really informative. The barn owl belle and the hawk treacle were absolute stars. I'd recommend this to anyone young or old. Wonderful memories made. Such a great bunch. The team who run this are all super friendly and helpful. They are great with kids and us big kids too

On the hottest day of the year, it seemed sensible to redeem the voucher I bought my OH for Christmas; a half-day Falconry Experience with the amazing team at Lavenham Falconry The Raptor Conservancy! Andy, our hugely knowledgeable guide, knows and cares for his birds perfectly! OH was able to fly and feed six birds - different owls, kestrels & hawks! The pictures show only a fraction of the fun we had! OH enjoyed the half-day experience, but there are others from an hour to a whole day; we will definitely return to try the something else! It’s so rare to be up close and personal with such stunningly incredible birds and to be able to learn from a talent such as Andy! What really impressed us is that bought the experience for him and a guest, observer ticket for me, but because all the activity took place inches away from the viewing area, I was almost as close to the birds and was certainly included in the discussions about each bird. Andy was totally inclusive - loved it!
This is a wonderful place, in deepest Suffolk; a range of units selling crafts and plants, as well as a lovely restaurant (we hadn’t booked, but it’s advised)! I highly recommend the panini!
A great day and one that’s educational as well as fun! Andy and the other specialists clearly love what they do and are happy to share their knowledge!

In general, I am happy with this experience as the birds were amazing. But I was a bit disappointing that 4 out of 6 birds didn't really feel like flying and we waited ages for them to fly to the glove. Also, 1 hawk disappeared in the forest and we spent 15-20 mins just standing there and waiting for the keeper/trainer to come back with the bird. Experience took 4 hours, not 3 as estimated. I expected for this money, the birds would be well trained to react to the commands.

Had a great day here with the birds, we had an owl experience but we also got to fly the Harris hawk. In the afternoon we had an experience with the three ravens, the people who worked there were knowledgeable and passionate about the birds. All in all it was a lovely day. Thank you.
