I went along here to take photographs of the Owls in particular,for a creative project I'm embarking on. The weather was freezing so we had the keeper to ourselves and under the circumstances he was very generous with his time, sharing his knowledge. It is splendid to get up so close to these adorable birds. We saw fine specimen's of... More

Just had the most wonderful morning with Mark and Rob. I booked the 2 hr experience which consisted of 1 hour hawk walk and 1 hour informative chat and handle. It was truly wonderful. Mark is an incredibly knowledgable and friendly man and the love he has for his birds shows through. It was just me on the walk and... More

Mark has such phenomenal knowledge of his birds and it was such a great experience learning from him. He brought the owls out for our group of four adult and one toddler - even brought out the biscuit tin for the toddler - and we all found it fascinating. I'm already planning when me and some friends are going to... More

Mark's Battlefield Falconry Centre is a must-see if you find yourself in the area. We visited after reaching the great reviews and weren't disappointed. Mark cares for over 50 birds of prey, including hawks, falcons, owls, parrots, a tarantula, a snake and 3 very funny dogs (including a pomeranian who hasn't been told he's not a lion). He treats these... More

We took my grandchildren to view the birds.We bought our tickets, but were informed that the Falconer was not available as he had gone to talk to a school. Some of the birds had gone with him! It only took 20 minutes to look at the birds & take photographs. There were some huge & beautiful white owls. Their dinners... More

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
