We went out with a Harris Hawk (initially 2 but they fell out some one had to go back!). No matter... More

A 2 hour bird of prey experience run by friendly, informative staff who clearly love what they do and the birds they handle. All the birds where in top condition and obviously enjoying their environment. Mark, the gentlemen running the centre, was passionate about his birds, knowledgeable, humorous, very personable and gave us a real insight into falconry with hands... More

I visited the Falconry Centre in February and had a fantastic time. First we went on a walk round the woods with some of the hawks and the two very knowledgeable guides, and had the amazing opportunity to feed the hawks and have them land on our arms. It is amazing to be up close and personal with a hawk... More

this was a fantastic experience run by people who clearly love their birds and have a huge knowledge of their subject. One hour learning to fly a Harris hawk and then some time with three really cute owls! Wonderful way to spend a Saturday morning. The battlefield farm shop is adjacent with a great coffee shop and lunch time menu.

We arranged this this as a treat for my wife's grandfather as he loves birds. In the end we all took part and went on the 'hawk walk' which was a wonderfully intimate experience. Our family, falconer Tony and the star of the show, Oscar the Harris hawk spent a lovely time together. Tony was great and clearly is devoted... More

Visited this morning for bird of prey experience with my mum, we both thoroughly enjoyed it, would definitely go again. The very friendly, informative+humourous staff really made the experience a great one.

Visited the Falconry on Friday afternoon, after a long journey up from Essex it was definitely worth it. Mark and his team really friendly and helpful. All have a brilliant sense of humour which always helps. Have never done this before but would love to go back. The centre is also great with lovley owls as well as other birds... More

My husband, Richard and myself spent an absolutely amazing morning at the Falconry Centre yesterday. The two of us and two very friendly Irish ladies were welcomed by Mark and his three lovely dogs to the Centre, then Mark took us in the Land Rover around the Battlefield estate. We saw two red kites while we were going around which... More

I've lived in Shrewsbury for over 30 years and I've only recently discovered this beautiful place existed! BAmazing experience, can't describe how it feels to have a hawk land on your arm, take its food and then on the tilt of your arm fly off. My youngest daughter was a little scared to begin with but Mark put her at... More
