Fun for the whole family

Large range of birds of prey with eye-catching information posters about each one. Great flying displays and opportunities to handle birds too.

My boyfriend booked us the feathers, fur and reptiles experience for a Christmas present. It was absolutely amazing! There was only the two of us and we got to do so much in the 3 hours we had. The handler was so lovely (I think her name was shauna? I can't remember) she really made the experience extra special. She... More

A fantastic day out! We had some lunch first then moved on to seeing some birds of prey. We really enjoyed the bird display, very informative and we found out that all the birds are working birds (so they don't just sit in cages for the rest of their lives) We will definitely be going back to see the farm...

My friends and I visited here on a Saturday in December. We had such a wonderful time. The birds are amazing. We flew some owls and did some handling. During this we found out all about the birds we were handling. There are many birds of prey at this sanctuary which you can walk round and look at. The staff... More

Got this on a Voucher for £15 per person. Lovely hour with owls, flying them and holding them and then a nice afternoon tea, not luxury end, but nice. Is a lovely day out for any owl lover. Also included access to all of the birds of prey area to see all of the owls and other birds. They all... More

Enjoyed the birds and the animals and staff welcoming, however the place needs money spending on it and looks generally run down. Toilets were disgusting!

We spent our time with Kyle and James who were fantastic, they clearly loved their jobs and really cared about the birds. We got to hold a lot of birds which was fantastic - I thought it was only going to be about 2 or 3 but it was a lot more. Can't recommend the place enough.

My wife and I visited the centre today on a Groupon deal, we had a great time. The two girls that conducted our flight demonstrations and holding sessions were very knowledgeable and answered any questions asked. We would recommend this venue experience to anyone, young or old. After our experience we were cold so we went to the tea room... More
