“excellent day out”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

We had a brilliant day out at the centre. We had a half day experience which had been bought as a Xmas present. The staff were really dedicated and very knowledgeable. We have been to quite a few of these centres and this is right up there with the best of them.

“Amazing day out!”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

We spent an amazing day at the centre today. It is really hands on and I must have handled at least ten different birds. The staff are incredibly knowledgable and committed to caring for the birds. The flying displays were awesome and entertaining at the same time and the informative talks really interesting and lighthearted. Value for money is fabulous at only £6.50 for an adult and we spent a good six hours looking round and handling the birds. Will definitely return and can't recommend enough.

“Fantastic hands on experience - we will return!”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Went to the centre to fulfil birthday present for son and girlfriend - bought them a half day falconry experience. There were six of us aged from 18 to 73 and everyone came home thrilled and ready to plan the next visit. Grandma even sponsored a bird!! The staff are all volunteers and the work they do is both exceptional carried out with passion. Their knowledge is faultless and the shows are very entertaining both in humour and the wow factor! Plan a visit now!!!
