Great day out. The gentleman who talked about the birds was obviosly very knowledgeable and passionate about them and made a, possibly quite dry subject, fun and interesting. The ladies in the tea room were very pleasant and could not have done more for us. Already making plans to return. We used a groupon voucher which was excellent value.

We were there on an extremely wet day, but the animals were still about. There was an indoor bird of prey display and it has a nice cafe for refreshments

I wish I had read other reviews before coming here. I purchased a groupon voucher and on arrival went inside to the tea room. I told the lady I had a Groupon voucher and she seemed to be a bit off. I put it down to the fact that there were quite a few people in the tea room and... More

Thank you for your response. It is very regretful that we made you feel unwelcome on your recent visit to the bird of prey centre. Our customers are very important to us, as the admission cost keeps the centre running. We are having high numbers of vouchers being redeemed at the moment due to their expiry on the 31st October,...

Had such a great afternoon here on Friday that I went back again Saturday... some amazing Birds living in a great environment which is lovely to see as so many seem to be neglected. The talk and flying demonstration takes a full 2.5hrs with lots of encouragement to interact and some incredible information from the handler who is obviously an... More

We took a group of 20 Brownies aged 7 -10 to the LBPC last Saturday afternoon. We spent 3 hours at the centre and we all learnt an awful lot about the many Birds of Prey at the centre. The flying display and talk by Paul was entertaining and fascinating. One of the falcons took himself off into the wide... More

We had a fabulous afternoon here (and at nearby Lowther Castle). You can see many different birds in the lovely old walled gardens, then there is a talk/flying display for a few hours. The guy who does it is a very good speaker, very knowledgable, and very funny. The birds are amazing, and the affection and respect between him and... More

Funnily enough, I'm not a huge fan of birds and even have a phobia of them flying near me. However, the Lakeland Centre has thoroughly converted me. We arrived in time for 1.5 hours of the talk, which was hugely entertaining and informative. I had the chance to have a hawk fly to and from me, which was a wonderful... More

The handler is a great speaker, very open to questions and we both had a thoroughly fascinating couple of hours. The selection of birds is quite tremendous too
