My husband and I, and our 10-year old son, spent about and hour waking round seeing all the different birds then had a lovely home-made lunch in the tea room (try the home made soups - delicious!). We were then treated to a 2 and 1/2 hour show from the owner who was so informative about all the birds. My... More

Watching the birds work for the lure. Shared some laughs too . Even my daughter who is nearly 4 loved it there and enjoyed watching the birds. She was made up... More

Everything about the centre is quaint and leaves a real sense of 'olde worlde england.' The cafe staff are courteus and helpful and we enjoyed a lovely sandwichs... More

We didn't have any expectations of Lakeland Bird of Prey Centre. I was surprised not to be given a receipt after paying our admission fees, nor were there any leaflets bearing directions. Was told to go through the gate and there would be a talk would be at 2 o' clock. After walking around looking at the birds (approx 30... More

We decided to visit on a whim and we were so glad we did. The place is fantastic the birds are amazing and the handler is very knowledgeable and takes the time to explain things and answer questions. They even let you fly some of the birds and touch them which in itself is an amazing experience. The entry feel... More

This place is so lovely! The birds are beautiful and so well looked after. The trainer/ handler/ owner is incredibly experienced and knowledgeable. The show was fascinating to watch and very educational. The little cafe is the quaintest thing you'll ever see, absolutely gorgeous. We enjoyed a lovely bowl of soup each followed by tea with cake and scones. Despite... More
