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

I live in Liverpool and had booked a trip to the Yorkshire Dales from Friday 19th December-Monday 21st December and booked Bird of Prey Half Day Experiences for myself and Fiancee (£65) for the Saturday morning. I booked over the phone well in advance and was told that if the weather was bad and the birds could not fly, I... 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

Had a really brilliant day, great experience to get up close to the birds and handlers were friendly and knowledgeable. Lovely cups of tea and thoroughly enjoyed Lamb Hotpot and Cheese and Broccoli Bake. Would recommend this to friends.

Arrive at least 30 minutes before one of the scheduled flying times to give yourself time to look at the birds not flying. The go and listen and watch as your falconer flies the birds around and over you. If you get a chance put a glove on and have a bird land on your arm feed and then fly... More

A lovely afternoon spent watching 2 of the 3 displays available. The birds each had their own personalities and the local crow even joined in the show. The birds got close but were always under the control of the staff. A word of warning , use the brown signs as the sat nav can sent you a little wrong.
