Had an eagle and owl experience which lasted over 3 hours. All staff were extremely friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable and clearly had a passion for they amazing creatures they care for. We were able to handle and fly a number of eagles and a baby owl, and plenty of opportunities given to take photos. The afternoon display by the staff... More

perhaps the center was very busy with falconry experience tours but i found it more into party tricks than about gthe finest birds in this country the birds are great but the displays left a great deal to be desired it may be fun for the audience but party tricks are not my cup of tea

There are two bird shows a day at the centre and the commentary is great, very informative but also funny. The birds will fly right over your heads or come and sit next to you. We also paid extra to fly and hold some of the birds which was also worth while. Probably not too interesting for small children although... More

This Raptor Centre is excellent with a great variety of birds in a great environment. I spent a memorable day at the centre where I was given the privaledge of seeing the birds in their natural habitat for photographic purposes plus the birds were flown for me and I was given access to get better views of the flying. This... More

Brilliant flying displays. Knowledgable, friendly staff. Everything else dissapointing. Birds enclosures were in my opinion like prison cells, no branches/greenery for birds to hide in and I actually felt quite sorry for them. The staff are very knowledgable and the bird/animal displays are very informative but the information on the birds enclosures is either very difficult to read or missing... More

I was given a voucher for a bird flying experience which turned out to be a full tour around the centre with a chance to handle the birds. The afternoon was completed by a great display of different birds.

We had a great owl and eagle half day experience through buying excellent value vouchers via Amazon local. Great hands on time with a range of birds. Knowledgeable staff who communicated their knowledge well. Lots of photo opportunities. We want to go back for another visit sometime!

Two certainties at the birds if prey centre, 1. the staff will discuss at length the beautiful birds with passion and enthusiasm that will excite any child and include lots of photo opportunities and 2. the organisation of events will have 'hick-ups' each time. I suggest on the latter that you expect this to happen and politely smile through as... More

My wife and I booked the half day birds of prey handling experience. This included handling and flying some of the birds and also demonstrations by the staff at the centre. The staff we came in to contact with very very knowledgeable and friendly and made this a fun and interactive day out. The centre has a very good range... More
