Never realised that buying a Groupon voucher made you less important. Manager who gave initial briefing was more interested in pimping out the facilities. A half day falconry experience consisted of queuing with the 24 other people and having a bird hop between borrowed gloves. The instructor doesn't deserved a poor rating as he was very informative and would very... More

Too many people (> 30) meant that this was a very disappointing experience. We sat round a barn and the owls were passed from one person to another and this took even longer because people wanted to take numerous photographs. IMHO the person in charge was too tolerant of the time taken for this and didn't move things on. There... More

visited on Saturday 30th May as a Groupon gift from my partner. I'm glad I read the previous reviews about the experience in terms of group size and the waiting around otherwise I would have been disappointed with the experience. However I did enjoy the experience as you get to fly the birds from one person to another and see... More

We have a parking permit so we often nip over to walk the dog. The perimeter walk is good and the paths are being made more even. Informative plaques all around and great for children. We have previously been on the Bat Walk which was very interesting.

Visited today 090615, and enjoyed it very much, walked around and had a rest in the hyde and watched the different birds coming and going. A very quite place and disabled friendly, this is suitable for all ages groups from 1 to 101, you may have to book for some activities. The Hub cafe was very clean and the staff... More

Great place to visit all year round. Always lots of activities to do. We recently took our sons to do a laser shoot out activity in the near by woodland. The boys really enjoyed it and all the staff very helpful. One thing that would be nice is more homemade products such as cakes, biscuits or pies etc.

Had a really lovely evening, hosted by a very knowledgable guy (Dalter) who was very informative about these lovely birds.The session was well presented, being both educational and fun. Was great to be able to hold the birds and get to know more about them.... More

Visited here for an owl experience which was first class . Several species of owls were shown and the opportunity to lean all about each of them . Everyone given gauntlets so individually could have time with each bird and encouraged to stroke them , plenty of photo opportunities. Great for all ages especially education and fun for children.
