Spent a fantastic day experiencing the kind of birds of prey one normally only ever sees on the TV, about as close-up as one can possibly get. The staff are friendly, extremely informative & very approachable. You can tell they are experts in their own field. Absolutely loved being actually able to fly everything up to a bald-headed eagle, from... More

Brilliant! What a superb day, we had the Eagle & Kite experience with Jamie (who was excellent, passionate about his work and choc a block full of enthusiasm). We held a variety or big birds and flew them too. The Centre itself is excellent and at first glance you think it would take half hour to get around but you... More

We had a good morning on the American Raptur activity. The centre has far more birds than I imagined and we only got to see a small group of them so plenty to see on he next visit. Guides were informative and approachable. We got to hold the birds, and fly them too. Quite an experience to have a large... More

A groupon deal for a 3hr experience of archery, laser shooting, rifle and knife throwing. Good value and well organised so not too much waiting around as the group was a reasonable size. Quite a bit could be done undercover if weather turned which is a plus. Instructors were friendly, knowledgeable and kept the humour up which made it a... More

Myself a 60+ and a young man friend went for a half day of falconry, archery & shooting. The range of birds is fantastic and the tutor falconer extremely knowledgable and enthusiastic about hunting birds. A group of about 8 of us, we got to fly an owl, kestrel & falcon and to handle a very magnificent bald eagle called... More

I paid for an experience day for my daughter and her friend. They refused to allow her to use the voucher. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY IT IS A RIP OFF

Had a wonderful 1/2 day experience in the capable and very knowledgeable hands of Graham, our guide for the morning. There was only 4 of us in the party so we were all able to have a go at handling about several birds ranging from Barn Own, Harris Hawk, Chilean Eagle,Kestrel. We also went into the parade field and Graham... More

Five of us spent the afternoon for the Owls and Eagles experience. We were able to fly the birds to the glove and also to hold a variety of birds on the glove, including a bald eagle. The staff were knowlegeable, friendly and entertaining and we came away with amazing photos and memorable experiences. There is also a large collection... More
