This place is ideal for children and adults alike. I visited with my Father, as his Father's Day present and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. The chap doing the display was very informative and his jokes made us both chuckle! It was lovely how the children were allowed to get involved and have a go at flying the bird etc.... More

Fantastic place. The best falconry demo I've ever been to ( and I've been to a few ). Very intuitive and the falconer is good craic too. The food in the cafe is great too.

We arrived at the Lakeland Bird of Prey Centre after a really miserable and disappointing visit to Wetheriggs Zoo and couldn't have been more happy with the contrast that welcomed us! We walked into the paying area/Tearoom to the wonderful aroma of a homemade soup being made (which we would sample later...) and were greeted by warm and welcoming smile.... More

My wife and I got a free voucher for the centre from a hotel we stayed at, I am ashamed to admit that even though I live pretty locally i didn't know about this place. We turned up on a particularly miserable day and found our way in to the cosy and quirky tea room/cafe. We were made welcome and... More

We chose a fine day to drive over to Lowther. We enjoyed a bowl of home made soup and viewed the birds in their cages until 2pm when the display started. The birds are beautiful and the handler is very knowledgeable and amusing. I had a Harris hawk on my gloved hand - ace ! The display lasts 2hours and... More

We (2 adults) visited the Bird of Prey Centre on !st July 2014 having purchase a deal monster voucher which entitled us to entry and Afternoon Tea. Place was OK but not very well maintained, and the eating establishment didn't appear the most hygienic. As we arrived around midday and the show wasn't until 2pm we had a wander round.... More

Visited this centre today and have had a thoroughly enjoyable day. The bird flying demonstration was so entertaining. The clear commentary from Paul made the afternoon fly by. Excuse the pun, but his humour was infectious. We chose to have our afternoon tea after the display and this proved to be a good decision. Was a a welcome warm up... More
