This was my first visit, and I will be returning. The staff were really helpful, courteous and knowledgeable. The lady who was our falconry experience 'guide' was completing a Masters degree in Zoology and had been a volunteer at Cheshire Falconry for over 3 years - anything you needed / wanted to know was explained/answered simply, clearly and with good...

I visited the falconry on a weekday and paid £3 to get in. The only thing to do there was look at some birds over a fence, no one offered to let me hold one or even tell me anything about them. The pet shop a few doors down is more entertaining and it's free!

A remarkable experience coming face to face with some beautiful birds. You not only get to handle these magnificent birds of prey but have the whole experience enriched with some very knowledgable falconers who take great care of the birds on display. You manage to come face to face with hawks, owls and if you are lucky on the day... More

The star of the show is Rob, the birds are just feathered assistants used to illustrate his brilliant educational and hugely entertaining monologue. This was our second visit. Having had an excellent time on the “Meet the birds” morning my wife and I wondered if the “Eagle Experience” could maintain the standard. Well, Lucy and Rob excelled themselves. It’s an... More

This was booked for me as a surprise. The staff were very helpful and friendly and obviously enjoyed their work and were extremely knowledgable. We were lucky the morning we visited as we were the only ones booked in. We were allowed as much time as we wanted looking at the birds in the cages and it was explained to... More

I recently visited the falconry center at Blakemere. We only visited the birds in the cages so I cannot comment on the flying experience. The aviary was like a Gulag for birds! I found it deeply upsetting as did my daughter. The birds were existing in almost bear enclosures with almost no enrichment. There was a member of staff cleaning... More

Hi, in response to your comments , our aviary collection of birds of prey are maintained to the best possible standard .I dispute with you the statement you made .Our birds breed and produce healthy offspring in the aviaries . I feel you should have spoken to a member of staff ,who would have explained why birds of prey are... More

Absolutely fantastic time. Sorry can't remember the gentleman that led the session but called all the women Jane and made up names for the men. Had the big hat. However, he was knowledgeable and kept us all amused. Well worth the day out. One of the best experiences of my life. Keep up the good work. Would recommend it to... More

We visited here today, part of a Meet The Birds three hour visit. It was a birthday treat for my friend, we travelled a long way, leaving at 7.30 a.m. It was excellent, and highly recommended. I did mention to Lucy that it was my friends birthday, hoping she would wish her a Happy Birthday, but sadly it didn't happen.... More

I visited here on the owl experience half day, bought as a present for my birthday and I cannot speak highly enough of the experience. Lucy was a wonderful teacher, her passion for the owls was lovely and she had such great knowledge that she shared with us answering any questions the group had. I got to fly 5 different... More
