Excellent staff, impressive selection of birds of prey both flying and available for one to one contact. Very enjoyable. A few myths about these wondeful creatures debunked. There is something about holding a Golden Eagle on your hand, just incredible. Thanks to all the volunteers at the centre who were so helpful and friendly.

Had a wonderful day at the centre. The flying displays were great, the staff (who are all volunteers) are fantastic and very well informed. It was both entertaining and educational. You can handle the birds and we even went into the aviaries of the baby owls and petted them. They should charge more, I would willingly pay double.
