We visited today and both us and our two children(4yr old and 6yr old) had a fab day! We paid an extra £10 to have a one hour experience and got to hold and fly several birds. All the birds are very well cared for and look very happy and relaxed. The staff made the day for us! We thought... More

Visited this centre last year in August with our grandson,when it had just opened on the new site. We had a very good impression bearing in mind they had only just relocated. We stayed on then for the evening barbeque and more bird handling which our grandson enjoyed. We returned last week but very disappointed. Down both sides of the... More

My husband & I booked the falconry with archery & rifle shooting experience for our birthdays. We had to rearrange the date initially due to other commitments and the lady I spoke to on the telephone was very helpful & accommodating. So today we went to Herrings Farm and had a lovely day. However, the group we were in was... More

Visited here as a group of 3 adults and 2 children and I can honestly say we all enjoyed it equally. We stayed and watched 3 of the shows and thought they were all totally amazing. Enthusiastic, friendly, informative staff. Lots of birds to look at in between shows. We took a picnic and the children thoroughly enjoyed bouncing on... More

I went on the 2 hour Eagle Experience and was disappointed that we spent hardly any time with the eagles at all. When we arrived we were first all given tea or coffee in a disposable cup (no sign of the cake that had been offered in the advertisement). Three eagle owls were then presented to our group of eleven.... More

Brought a half day experience for hubby and myself, got to handle and fly lots of the birds, staff were helpful and had a great deal of knowledge. My daughter has since been on a kids day which she thoroughly enjoyed too.

We had a brilliant day out, just amazing. The staff, especially Shauna and Ben were very friendly and knowledgable. Always happy to answer any questions. It's obvious to see from all the staff their dedication in caring for all the birds. We would recommend this experience, and will definitely make a return visit. Thank you for a great day.

Quite a large centre, comprising of Birds of Prey, with other animals including a creepy-crawly encounter centre. Plenty of experience days available for up close experiences, including hour, half day, full day and multi-day courses. Plenty of time with a Falconer on one of these experiences, handling the birds and learning about them. The flying displays are the best way... More

Once off the phone the lady in the office told us she had no record of our... More
