Unfortunately we had a long drive back so weren't able to stay for the flight show, but we walked around the grounds and saw all the birds. They're really stunning and each bird has an interesting info sign on the aviary. The tea room is unique, lots of knick-knacks but very welcoming. Grounds are gorgeous and well-maintained. Would go back... More

I was rather looking forward to visiting the Bird of Prey Center, and upon arrival was a little disappointed. To be honest there's nothing of the negatives I found in my visit that couldn't be fixed easily. It has a cozy little tea room, had a very family orientated atmosphere, the birds were impressive and the staff were knowledgeable and... More

We bought 4 adult entry/cream tea vouchers from Travelzoo and we were very much made to feel that we were 'voucher' visitors. We looked on the website before visiting and saw that the show commenced at 2pm and the centre opened at 11.30am. We decided to travel there early and have our cream tea before the show. According to the... More

I hate to score below 4/5 but I was a bit underwhelmed by my visit. As much as the birds looked in good feather, I expected to see more flying of different species (3 falcons and a harris hawk). The aviaries do look a little tired but that shouldn't perturb visitors and the tea room is unusual with its antiquities... More

I'd booked this through Groupon for my husbands birthday, somewhere a bit different which we hadn't visited before although we are quite local. We arrived in beautiful sunshine and were greeted by a friendly lady in the quirky vintage cafe there. We decided to go and have a look around before getting our food which was included in the deal.... More

This is a fantastic opportunity to see these wonderful birds, almost up close and personal.We live several miles from the bird of prey centre, and whenever we have visitors,family and friends, we always tell them to visit there.Not one of them has been disappointed.From the friendly staff,out and about, down to cafe, it is well worth the visit.

I bought a voucher for my husband for here off deal monster. It was extremely good value for money. The talk was informative but lighthearted which kept you interested. The birds were spectacular and kept in very good condition. Cream tea was served as part of the deal afterwards and was very nice. All in all extremely good value for... More

This was an added bonus, after all, a Bird of Prey Centre is just a Bird of Prey Centre,isn,t it? No, this one was different with a small family run cafe serving very nice, freshly prepared, food, and outbuildings with antiques for sale. The Birds are kept in a large area with some substantial cages for the larger birds as... More
