This is the second time we've been here (the last time about 4 years ago). Kids love it. Ray and his staff are knowledgeable and friendly and only too happy to let the children get up close with the birds. We will be coming back over and over again.

We visited The Kielder Bird of Prey Centre on our weekend at Kielder waterside park, we were impressed with the variety of birds but unfortunately they don't fly them at this time of year so a bit disappointed that we couldn't see them fly. The staff were very knowledgeable and answered all our questions and even though it was raining... More

Cannot recommend the Kielder Bird of Prey Centre highly enough. Nothing was too much trouble for Ray and his team who spent a lot of time with us explaining about the birds.

Went on freezing cold day in January but did not take away the enjoyment. Wonderful informative staff who really cared about the birds. Got to feed a bird and stroke some small owls. Hope to visit again soon.

Lovely guys working there. True passion for what they're doing. Had a very educational visit. Stroked a few of the owls and was able to each feed a falcon as was quiet. The guys made the visit with their unlimited knowledge and willingness to answer all our questions. Can't wait to go back in the summer and see their birds... More

As part of Winter Wonderland was Birds of Prey staff very friendly. They knew alot about there birds and showed such enthusiasm while talking. Came over with some of the birds to my mam who was in a wheel chair, she was really chuffed.

Visited the 1st week November, had a lovely walk round and saw some wonderful birds, slightly expensive but well worth a visit.

This wasn't our first visit to the centre and we had another great time. The birds are interesting and the staff are knowledgeable and want to help the kids to enjoy and learn. It's expensive but a good place to support.
