You see fantastic Hawks, Falcons and beautiful owls closer than you'll ever see them anywhere else. You'll also see them flying and coming to land on your gloved hand. What made this visit one to remember was the knowledge, passion and open friendliness of the tour leader, Mark. The icing on the cake? The three mad dogs, one of which... More

Myself and partner both enjoyed our visit to the centre completely.Had a wonderful time flying the hawk and seeing and holding various owls. The hawk walk was thoroughly enjoyable. Mark kept the group entertained from the first minute to the last with his skill,knowledge and wonderful sense of humour. In a nutshell it was a fantastic experience, which I would... More

We have visited today and had the opportunity to fly a Harris halk. Really enjoyed the walk around with Mark, the dogs and the halk. We then went back to the centre and met a number of owls. Mark and the team were very friendly and know their stuff. I have learned so much. The centre is well worth a... More

we would recommend this experience for any one who would like to handle and learn about hunting birds. This was excellent value and something completely different for older parents when you are struggling to purchase something they don't already have. We have learned so much about a variety of birds and how they are used to hunt. A super morning... More

I purchased the Bird of Prey Experience for my partner as a Xmas pressie and without a doubt its probably his favourite gift. The Falconry Centre is located just north of the historic town of Shrewsbury on the A49 Whitchurch road, look for the cream coloured sign and follow the arrows. The centre is open from 10.00 am till 4.00pm... More

What an amazing couple of hours this was. From the moment Mark introduced himself he kept the group entertained, informed and involved. The whole experience is one of those occasions where you are left wondering where the time went. No doubt about the fact that we will be back. (If only so Lyndsey can renew her aquaintance with Maddy) That's... More

Such a wonderful experience! The hawk walk was amazing and it really shows the skill and precision of the Harris Hawk in action. Handling the other birds such as the Barn Owl afterwards too and seeing them close up was breathtaking and it's clear from everyone there that these birds are cared for by people who clearly know what they're...

This was a fantastic morning spent in the Shropshire Countryside. We spent an hour walking and flying Bud the Harris Hawk. The handler Mark was very knowledgeable and set up some fantastic shots for the budding photographers in our group. After the walk we spent sometime learning about the different birds and had a chance to hold a Barn Owl... More

Very interesting few hours spent at the Falconry Centre. Most impressed with the very high standards of maintenance at this facility and the wide variety of birds. We did not get to do the hawk walk and I'm sorry we missed this so do book in advance. The staff here are absolutely charming, most are volunteers! Great job you guys!!!... More
