Fantastic experience, highly recommended.
Nov 2021
We had a really great 1/2 day experience at the Cumberland Bird of Prey Centre. Gary and his dog Molly (she’s great) made my wife and me very welcome and Gary made the experience extra special with his passion for conservation and his knowledge of his birds. We flew a wide variety of well cared for birds during our visit, including being accompanied by “Buzz” a Harris Hawk on a woodland walk; it was fantastic.
We would highly recommend a visit to the centre, you will not be disappointed.

Great experience and huge fun!!!
Aug 2021
We had a fantastic afternoon for our family with Gary and the birds of prey. We got to fly all the birds, we learned a huge amount about the them and got to know their personalities a little too. The centre is a fantastic site and Gary really knows his stuff. The birds are clearly well looked after and everything was well organised and set out.

Thank you Gary for a great experience!

Fantastic experience
We had a fantastic time at the Cumberland bird of prey centre, really lovely environment for the birds, lots of hands on experiences . Great to be able to experience together as a family. We stopped on our way from the lakes to the lochs to break up the journey and it was better than we could have anticipated, happy teens as well . Thank you would highly recommend.

1 hour Family Bird of Prey Experience
Jul 2021
We enjoyed our trip to the Bird of Prey Centre. Gary was extremely welcoming and knowledgeable and you could see the passion from 30 years in the job. We heard and saw approx. 8-10 birds and got to handle, feed and fly 5 birds. 1 hour was perfect for what we were after; 2 adults and my 12 year old daughter.

Well worth it!
Jul 2021
We booked the half day experience for myself and my boyfriend, we had actually booked back in 2019 for Christmas but due to COVID we were unable to book anything, was so lovely for the team to still accept the booking even after such a long time! Was well worth the wait as well. We went in the middle of July and the weather was amazing!
Gary really knows his stuff, handles the birds so well and really makes a day of it and squeezes in as much as possible. You start with a brew in the new shelter they've built and it's a really nice way to get to know each other, discuss the day and then you head off and meet and handle the birds and they're so full of personality! Pedro, Ester and Buzz were particular favorites, such loveable little characters.
Couldn't thank Gary enough for the day, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would recommend this experience to anyone!

A wonderful experience
Jun 2021 • Family
A fantastic experience. Gary tells you all about each species of bird and describes the individual character of each too. So interesting. Flying them is amazing. The four of us in out group (aged 9 to 70 ) we’re entranced. The whole experience was relaxed and delightful. We hope to go again

Up close and personal with Birds of Prey
Jun 2021
Got a half day visit as a 70th birthday present. Definitely a wow present! From the moment Molly, a springer spaniel, greeted us in the car park to when we left three hrs later we were enthralled. Garry shared his wonderful chocolate birthday cake with us and then introduced us to his amazing bird team. Garrys introductions were informative, his concern for the welfare of the birds was paramount and his team had some real characters.
The setting is beautiful, lovely wildflowers and lots of trees, just so relaxing.
If you like birds of prey and are interesting in learning more and having up close encounters, this is a must for you. We loved it!

Your helping eat my cake saved me a notch on my belt, although I think Molly would have helped. Thank you for the review. Gary

Fantastic afternoon. Gary was very funny and also very knowledgeable. Loads of different types of birds of prey. Brilliant for families as well as couples. Free parking was an added bonus. Take the kids as they will love it,
