Went with my husband whilst on holiday and had a wonderful visit. There were lots of children there for the two flight demonstrations and the staff involved them at every point. The pens were lovely and clean, the birds all looked healthy and well, but watching the Black Kite fly free was amazing. You can come and go all day... More

I came upon this place, at Leaplish, by accident and am glad that I did! It is not large but has many well kept birds of prey. I was in time for the first flying display at 1.30, and the staff encourage a return for the second display, included in the entry price, which has different birds flying. The birds... More

The birds were beautiful and very well kept. We stayed for both the 1.30 and 3.00 flying displays and we weren't disappointed. Absolutely incredible. The crowd were... More

Visited yesterday 09/08/16 and had a great time. Although small there are plenty of birds of prey to see and the 2 flying shows are fantastic. Staff are great with both kids and adults alike and extremely knowledgeable about the birds they care for. As an amateur wildlife photographer the place is right up my street and I would highly...

Kielder Water Bird of Prey Centre is a very exciting place to visit. The birds of Prey are fantastic, their abilities in the air have to be seen to be believed. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Lots to see and do for children.

For the size and price of the center I wasn't expecting much but both myself and partner were amazed by how many birds were there. When visiting make sure you was a show the keepers are great at getting visitors involved choosing different people each time before the birds fly onto their hands. Even the little rain couldn't stay for... More
