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.

Had a great day here today, lots of interesting birds to see and the free flying demonstrations were very good. Got to see a variety of birds close up and demonstrating their talents. The two falconers who did the displays were very friendly and had lots of knowledge to pass on about the birds, they were really passionate about them.... More

I last visited this centre about 20 years ago, when they had a HUGE Condor. Unsurprisingly this is no longer there. However, there were enough other varieties of Raptors there, to keep my wife & I, plus our 8 year old daughter, entertained. The staff were all pleasant, and willing to answer any questions that were put to them. The... More

It was absolutely brilliant. The staff were friendly and very knowledgeable. A wide range of birds and the shows were fun. Shaking an owl's beak is definitely a memory to treasure. The kids loved the play park and the tea shop is a gem.

We visited this centre a few months ago. My son bought a cuddly from the shop. After refreshments we were allowed to go into the play area which my son loved. He is only young and did not want to see the bird show. We returned a few days ago as my son wanted to play in the play area... More

Having seen many falconry displays in the UK and abroad my wife and I decided to treat ourselves to the half day falconry experience. It turned out to be an inspired decision because on a perfect Dales morning we had a fabulous time. We met Kieran the young falconer for a tea and a chat before moving outside to meet... More

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

I booked a day at the centre for my boyfriends birthday and we were not disappointed!! Absolutely outstanding from start to finish. We were greeted by David the falconer and was invited in for a coffee. We were took around the centre and introduced to the birds in great detail, we were lucky enough to handle some of the birds...
