Excellent experience. Took my son for his birthday. Very knowledgable instructor with a good sense of humour. Very safe. Plenty of time for each person to fly each of 5 birds. Rained quite heavily but this did not spoil the experience as there is shelter with still plenty of room for the birds to fly

I received a gift voucher for the Full Day Falconry for my birthday and it was an excellent present. The morning was spent in the arena with various birds and was incredibly informative. Rob, the handler, was incredibly knowledgable and had a clear passion for the birds in his care. The afternoon walk with the Harris Hawks was a truly... More

We went to this falconry centre at the weekend where my wife joined their Owl Experience. We had a wonderful time and the staff there were excellent. The experience was great and one my wife will remember for many years. The birds were fun and had real characters. A great day out as there is also lots of other attractions... More

My husband booked me this for my birthday and I wasn't disappointed. The whole thing lasted about 3 hours and it was a really hands on and personal experience. The guide was Alice and she was really knowledgeable and approachable. We were given the opportunity to 'fly' lots of different owls and Alice talked us through their characteristics and different...

A brilliant experience Simply: Give it a go! A totally brilliant experience, which was by Andy’s informative and interesting explanations of all the birds we handled. It was great to see Andy’s true love and enthusiasm for the birds, and that came across in how he spoke. The flying arena is great, and is easy to get to – up... More

On arrival just before 1 pm we were told that displays are only April to September it was 23 rd of September - great organisation. We... More

The Blakemere Craft Center is a very well organised and well appointed venue. It offers a wide selection of interests. There are shops. There is a very well presented pet store. This pet center had a wide selection of animal life. The birds were really and obviously properly cared for. It was also spotlessly clean. The team of people there... More

Spend a wonderful morning on the Meet the Birds experience at Blakemere. Robert (think that was his name) was the bird handler and was so knowledgeable and made the whole thing so interesting and enjoyable. We had a Barn Owl, Kestral, Buzzard, and a Harris Hawk numerous times flying onto our arms, and then even lucky enough to have an... More
