Myself and partner attended the Birds of Prey Centre as her birthday present. We took part in a Raptor & Reload session lasting 3 hours, giving us the opportunity to experience both bird flight and shooting. When we arrived at Herrings Green Farm, we found the layout of the site was superb. Plenty of parking to the rear of the... More

Originally visited when a friend received an experience as a gift and a group of us went to watch. I have since been back with partner to experience some bird flying and handling ourselves, and recently bought a voucher as a gift for my parents. Love this place. I work with animals and have welfare training, and have never seen... More

Four of us attended a three hour Bird of Prey Experience which was price matched directly by the centre to the same price as a voucher site. We were immediately concerned to be mixed into a large group as we originally thought it was just our party for the whole experience. It actually was not bad at all in the... More

My 4 year old grandson loved it. Great flying displays plus opportunities to handle falcons and owls.

I bought the experience for a present for my husband. This also included lunch, it was great value for money. We arrived at 10am and thought it would only last for approximately one hour, but we did not leave until 4pm. We were fully entertained the whole time. We were first shown around the centre and introduced to the various... More

We had fun at the Birds of Prey centre although a little expensive for what it is and cost us a lot of money while we were there, the kids were happy therefore we were happy!

Went for the Hocus Pocus event and saw all three flying displays - which were informative and funny as some of the birds were able to show their character - the two young kestels caused chaos by landing on everyone The staff were very good and friendly

We were extremely impressed with our first visit when the centre was based at Shuttleworth, but where it is now is just a poor shadow of what it used to be. It's all a bit ramshackle and the birds do not seem overtly pleased to be there. The flying display was about the best highlight, although many of the owls... More
