If you are a bird lover and would like to get up close and personal to Hawks this is the place for you. You won't be overwhelmed with different types of birds but what you will get is a hands on experience with Jay Marshall and his Harris Hawks, handling, then feeding them and learning about them and to walk...

My wife and I visited last year and had a fantastic experience. We had such a good time we made a point to return this year (we are from the US). We brought our children this time (age 7 and 4). While I would say this is not a good activity for most small children (ours are very brave and... More

This has to be the best day out I have ever had! Jay, Jake & Alissia were very welcoming from the start and by the end it felt as though we'd been visiting old friends. The birds are beautiful and very well cared for, you get know them and their different personalities which gives you quite a giggle. you can... More

When we flew them, it was so exciting and one flew from my wife's hand over to mine some 50m away...al captured on a video taken by Naomi the volunteer who is learning the... More

I had a wonderful experience with Jay and Mogwai on the Hawk Walk. It was a beautiful day & well worth the trip out from Bath. Jay gives clear instructions and makes the experience even better. The local area is lovely and Jay recommended an excellent pub. I cannot recommend this highly enough & it was outstanding value for the... More

I got given a voucher for a hawk walk for two as a birthday present and booked a Sunday in May. We both had a lovely time, it was our first experience with Hawks and they're fascinating! Their senses are amazing & they make such interesting noises.... A lovely way to spend time & I'de love to do it again.

Hi Laura, Thank you for your review. The little noises they make are pretty cute to be fair, and what could be better than flying a bird of prey in a lovely spot.. Thanks again. More

The hawk walk was a Christmas gift from our daughter and turned out to be a thoroughly enjoyable experience. We had the opportunity to work with two Hawks one of which was being trained. We were given clear instructions and walked though a wood before flying the birds in a nearby field. The birds were fed small pieces of chicks... More

Thank you for such a detailed Julie. The hawks do have a tendency to go off for little trips this time of the year, but good to see them in a natural environment. Glad you enjoyed the experience. More

We had an amazing time assisting with training a new hawk called Arlo. We then flew a more experienced hawk called Mogwai. Both had great character. Jay was great and the volunteers, George and Naya, were happy to answer our questions. We would both highly recommend this experience - one to tick off the bucket list!
