Went to one of these in Northumberland some seven years ago. Now have a 5 year old granddaughter so i took her there. A brilliant experience with hands on experience and very knowledgeable and friendly staff. A great day out. I will definitely visit again. FANTASTIC. And well worth the entrance fee. They do not overcharge for refreshments either.

This experience is very informative. Lee the person who showed us around the Owls was both very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the birds. The experience can be recommended for all ages. It's our second visit to the centre and would recommend a visit to this friendly family run centre.

After three visits to the centre this summer i am still in awe of the wonderful birds and the amount of work the staff and volunteers do. Everyone are so freindly, helpful and knowledgeable. Been able to interact with the birds is awesome and the displays are not to be missed. It is definately an attraction children will love.

Anyone with an interest in birds of prey should visit here and have the best day out in Yorkshire. To be able hold a golden eagle (which I did) is one of the best feeling I've ever had. By far the best value for money day out I've had and my 6 he old daughter also thought it was fab.
