On initial view from outside, thought it would be small, with a few birds, but was so surprised at the number of birds to see. Most really closely. The flying demonstrations were excellent, with lots of interaction with everyone visiting. Much better than ones I'd been to before. The staff are so dedicated and all the birds well cared for....

My son and I visited here early in August. Superb opportunity for everyone to get hands on with fabulous birds. My son did 1-1 under 14 experience. Patience and dedicated staff gave my son a lasting memorable experience. Highly recommended.

Very informative staff who are friendly and passionate about the birds. Excellent demonstrations of birds, full of information and good humour. Great selection of birds all with their own personality. Overall, a great day. Well worth a visit. Will be back again.

We had a trip to the bird of prey centre whilst staying in Kielder, big thanks to the gentleman (really sorry didn't get his name, but worked here and had a moustache) was really lovely with my son who was really nervous in stroking an owl, and even let us nip back the next day once he had plucked up...

My son loves birds of prey so we have visited a number of times over the past five years. This centre never disappoints. The children remember the birds by name and look forward to seeing them again. Ray who is the owner is brilliant with children and him and the other staff make sure that everyone has a really informative... More
