Stumbled across this Falconry and were very glad of it too. We were lucky to visit on a quiet day. There was a small group of school children who were very well behaved visiting at the same time, and a couple of family groups. The Falconry site is quite small but we were still wandering around on our own most... More

This place is a truly wonderful experience and should be visited by all. The falconers are extremely experienced and put on a amazing display with the vast range of birds. A great place to go. I highly recommend it

Paid for display. Would not accept travel Visa card or Manx pound sterling. Walked past first three birds and then started to rain. Told display would not go ahead and refused any refund. Feel Totally Ripped Off! Don't go there!!!

So, there are reviews about this and that... What you're here for is to see some great birds on display and that's what you get. We only managed to catch the last show but felt that our entrance fee was worth that show alone. This is about experience. When do you get the chance to rub shoulders with birds of... More

I took a friend there today for a birthday treat, & booked a half hour session with an Owl for her as she loves all Owls. It was a fantastic experience for both of us, my friend was delighted to have the bird - Ollie - on her gloved hand, & watch her fly, then we had a close encounter... More

We had a lovley half day birds of prey experience, and were able to hold and fly with several different types of birds. The staff was so firendly and informative, and the birds were majestic. It was very clear that the birds were well taken care of. Highly recommended!
