Arriving early we were greeted and told we could watch the display that was ongoing, however we got as far as the Iguana and were mesmerized by its antics. We didn’t realize all the birds and animals that are exhibited it was like a mini zoo ! After spending time with Iggy we carried on to look at spiders, snakes, Meerkats, Skunks and some beautiful birds. What a great place I thought. It got better when Alex introduced herself as our host she explained she was new at the job, however you would not have known. Alex was knowledgeable, enthusiastic, personable and you could see she loved her job. We were shown and held various birds including a white hybrid Falcon, a Kite and an Eagle Owl which was only 3 months old, weighing 4lb and was fully grown. We went on to do a flying encounter with a Barn owl, Kestrel and a Harris hawk, this was an amazing experience to be so close and have the birds fly and land on your glove. On the way back Alex stopped to show us Sydney a Kookaburra, from the land down under ( aptly named ), a few sharp dog barks with a trill soon got Sydney laughing away and shrieking back to us. I loved this and I never new I could speak a different language until meeting Sydney haha. I would highly recommend a visit to the Falconry centre if visiting Millet's Farm. Finally a big thank you to all the staff and especially Alex who made our experience special, hopefully we will see you again in the future.

Our experience of holding and flying a red kite, a Perlin (Merlin/PeregrineFalcon mix) and a Turkey Buzzard was a magical privilege. Our guide was handler/trainer Ben, whose knowledge, expertise and deep connection with the raptors was unparalleled. Although the farm was crowded with families enjoying the school holidays, our falconry experience was private and personal. It will long be remembered and celebrated in some artwork I plan. Highly recommended. Thank you, Ben!

I booked separate owl and meerkat experiences as a treat on my wife’s birthday, both of which were amazing however, the owl experience with Ross was definitely the highlight of our day.

Both keepers were passionate and had vast amounts of knowledge about the animals. It was great to see Ross’s passion and personal connection with the owls which made the experience even more enjoyable.

The site itself has so much to offer and it looks like they’re investing more into what looks like a great crazy golf course. Even if you don’t have the hands on experiences I’d definitely recommend going there just for a day out.

Excellent. Had this brought for me as a Christmas present. Had a wonderful time. The keepers are very knowledgeable and the birds well looked after.
Although it was only my wife and I that went, there is also plenty of things there for little ones to do as it is attached to Millets Farm.
There is also a cafe, farm shop and depending on what time of year you go, pick your own fruit.
Highly recommend.

So my son wanted an experience to remember for his 21st and decided he wanted to have an up close and personal encounter with raccoons. MIllets was the the one I could find that was nearest to us (72 miles) and I am so glad we went there. The staff were really friendly and the experience was amazing, my son couldn't stop smiling afterwards. As for the rest of the centre I was impressed and in love with the different animals and birds they had there, I did forget my adapter and had to use a small lense but I still got some great shots. Plenty of space for people to pass by each other and the whole place was clean and the animals well looked after.

Lovely animal experiences,
I booked 2 experiences for me & my girlfriend. (Raccoon experience & Owls)

Lady at the reception was absolutely lovely & exceptionally helpful.
We did our raccoon experience first, we did share the experience with 2 others. I was hoping the experience would just be us but we were lucky enough to be paired with nice people.

The racoons were hilarious & the experience was fun! Please remember long trousers (they have super sharp nails)

Our owl experience was my favourite, the keeper was absolutely fantastic & very nice!
He was super informative & we adored the amount of owls we got to meet & hold.
Our owl experience was one to one & that was fantastic.

Highly recommend the experiences!

Just got home from my daughters junior zoo keeper experience and WOW it was amazing. Millets on a whole was great anyway but the experience was a lot better than I expected. Ben, the soo keeper who took the kids around was actually amazing, kids and grown ups loved him, so friendly with everyone and took the time with each child to explain and answer any questions asked. All the other staff were great too. A great day that our daughter molly loved and we also loved equally. 😊

We did the owl experience and it was well worth it. We got to meet and handle 4 different owls, all with good info and explanation from our guide. The only criticism was the spiel felt a little robotic, and questions didn’t feel welcomed.
