My girlfriend took part in the 'Meet the Birds' 3 hour experience. I was a little unsure about paying the £20 spectator fee to watch but it turned out to be worth it as I got to go with her and the rest of the group everywhere and see the birds up close, although I did not get to hold... More

Cheshire Bushcraft situated next to the Falconry Centre provided a day of entertainment and learning for my husband & 2 sons. An enjoyable day was had by all, Baz the guide for the day was a brilliant, knowledgable and welcoming host. At £99 each it wasn't cheap but is worth it if you find Bushcraft interesting and want to try... More

Good little hour-or-so show with about 5 birds. Very interesting and interactive (they let you put a hawk on your hand...with a glove, of course...!) and gives you an amazing experience being very close to magnificent natural predators. I would reccomend to any bird lovers. Also, the rest of Blakemere Craft Centre is fun too! Me and my family go... More

They are willing to take payment for a voucher but make no effort to accommodate you if there is no availability. Resulting in your voucher eventually expiring and no offer of compensation, which I think is unacceptable! They have received our £78 and didn't do anything for it, disgusting. Not a way to run a business and I would never... More

I took part in the half-day 'Meet the Birds' experience with a friend. Booking was easy over the phone and on the day I called ahead to make sure the bad weather wouldn't mean a cancellation. We arrived at 9.15am and joined a group of about 12 other folk, then we met our guide Andy who introduced us to five... More

I booked the 'Meet the birds' experience for me and my fiancé to do for his birthday. The experience lasts 3 hours and was great! We learnt a lot about all of the different species of owls, hawks, buzzards, eagles etc. and got to handle and fly around 6 or 7 different birds of prey. It was amazing how graceful... More

What a great morning this was. The guide was on top form although he spoke rather fast he was very informative and never stopped. The raptors were of course fantastic. We had the Meet The Birds experience which was for 3 hours. It flew by (pardon the pun)! Thanks to my wife for a great birthday present x

I went for the day experience, the birds were clearly the stars of the day, with the supporting act of Bob in the morning. In the afternoon we went into the woods with a couple of Harris Hawks to see them working. It was a very informative and the staff clearly care about the birds.As an experience, I would definitely...
