We visited whilst on holiday in Ingleton. Day got off to bad start kept waiting for a good 10 minutes to pay the admission fee. The birds themselves looked healthy and well cared for and the young man who did the displays two of which we watched was knowledgeable and obviously cared greatly about the birds. Then you have the... More

I booked two full-day experiences for my partner's birthday present. It was well worth the money and a really great day. The staff were welcoming and very knowledgeable about the birds, and obviously really love their jobs. The day was much more hands-on than we expected and it was thrilling to be so close to these beautiful birds.

This was a freezing cold day, but gloriously bright sunshine, and views that went on for ever around the centre. Four adults and two boys of 10 and 3 walked past the birds in their "caves" and enjoyed them as individuals before watching the flying demonstration. The young man who handled the birds clearly knew them well, and loved them... More

Went to have the half-day experience as a birthday present for my daughter. Took her friend as well and they had a superb morning in the company of David and Jack and various owls, eagles and vultures who they were educated about, and then were able to handle and fly them. The birds have a variety of interesting personalities and... More
