Had a voucher for Christmas,something I had always wanted to do and I was not disappointed! Mark was an excellent and knowledgeable host not just on the birds but also the local history and the Battle Of Shrewsbury near the site of which the centre is situated. I must also thank Paul who gave a very interesting talk on the... More

Best visited on a dry day, lovely walk in fields down to a very old church. The falconry was amazing with the large birds, hawks,owls and an eagle. Then when you have been filled with the out doors, take a walk around the shop that's filled withgorgeous food to meet with every pallet. When you've walked your feet to the... More

It's nice to see birds close up but it is a very small set up think we stayed for 20 mins and that was dragging it out. It's not expensive the funds go to help the wildlife so it's worth a visit. There is a shop and cafe at battlefield so nice to look around and shop

We had a hawk walk and saw a range of different birds of pray and owls, they were beautiful and we even had a chance to feed them. We had a very interesting talk from one of the guides too. Amazing!

The whole experience was good. We have been to other similar places and they were not a patch on this one and were also much more expensive. Birds kept well, staff great, restaurant good value, shop had good variety and the museum was not bad either (and I am not a museum person). Easy to find, good parking, worth a... More

We went on an early morning hawk walk with Mark the Falconer and he drove us into some beautiful woodland where we had some amazing opportunities interacting with his 13-year-old magnificent Harris Hawk. This was an incredible experience for both my brother and me and the hour just flew by. Mark is very experienced and knowledgeable and gave us a... More

Booked this at the last moment for the Husband's birthday. Mark was very helpful and arranged an hour's walk at short notice. After lunch at Sparrows (also recommended), three of us were driven in a very comfortable 4x4 to some beautiful woodland and each given a glove. The wonderful Harris Hawk emerged from the back of the car (he loves... More

This is an excellent way to spend a dreary winter weekend. The instructor Mark Southall has a really good knowledge of his subject. Had a really good day there.

I went to Battlefield Falconry Centre with a group of friends on a beautiful winter morning. I have done several experiences in Shropshire because I love taking photos of wildlife but I felt this was one of the best. We did an hour "Hawk Walk" and another hour Owl Handling, we learnt a lot about all the birds and it... More
