“Nice experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014

Eagle Heights should be thought of as a work in progress rather than a slick visitor centre. Although it is starting to look a bit run down, really the draw is the birds and animals.

There was no Cheetah this time and there were only two Meerkats.

There was a great birds of prey demonstration, with knowledgeable, interested staff who also added a bit of humour to the proceedings. The flying display was close-up and spectacular. You actually feel as if those massive wing-spanned eagles are wild, flying free across the valley just behind the Eagle Heights site. The keepers clearly have a very close relationship with the birds, and a real passion and love for them. Moreover, they communicate that, as well as all the fascinating facts.

The cafe is OK with a home made vibe, very nice cake.

“Very good birds of prey show”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2014

Would recommend getting Groupon deal if you can.
Visited on a dull day during the week,
The main bird or prey show was very good with a good commentator, this was the highlight, so phone ahead to find out the time for this.
There seemed to be a few cages empty, I would guess it's much more livelier on school holidays etc..
Very friendly staff on hand to assist with any questions..
The canteen is average in my opinion.
Not a massive place, but it is supporting birds of prey, endangered species..
I wish them well for more support and donations.

“Brilliant Day Out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

Highly recommend a day at Eagle Heights.
It's great value for money, having purchased two tickets from Groupon for £10 and having visited as a child we really weren't expecting a lot. But we were pleasantly surprised. The displays were fantastic, so educational. The staff were fantastic, excellent customer services, extensive knowledge of the wonderful animals.
Although the cages are a little small and the birds didn't have a huge amount of space to move around.

“Lovely Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

A lovely place, great to take time out in but avoid times when children are on school holidays!
The little cafe is nice and the staff are friendly.

“Husky Hike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

Thoroughly enjoyable experience meeting and walking the huskies on Easter Saturday. Dogs beautiful and well kept. Was allowed in the pens with them to meet and get familiar with and decide which pack to walk/hike. Handlers very knowledgeable and their enthusiasm was a delight. We took four dogs out for over two hours of walking and were constantly given information and guidance all the time. Great with children of all ages and thoroughly recommended way of spending an afternoon and getting exercise as well. Will definitley be doing this again.
