This is an excellent Birds of Prey centre, the birds are well cared for and the displays are fabulous. The falconer was truly passionate about the bords and he made sure everyone enjoyed the event, including all the children.

Seemily a bit small, but a good variety of birds to go and see. This time we got the rare chance to feed a snowy owl which was great! From last time I know the flying displays are fun & informative, they simply weren't on this time because of the rain. Staff are friendly and knowledgable as always. Worth a... More

Everything about it is top notch, from the variety of the birds, through to the displays and the obvious passion of the staff for their birds. The public displays are excellent and they bring a variety of... More

I do not think I have ever met someone so enthusiastic about what he does and so willing to share that with anyone who will listen. Well worth a visit if... More
