The shows run at 11am, 1pm and 3pm. We went along to Radical Raptors at 2.30pm but entry wasn't permitted until 2.45pm. There was a nice little cafe outside so we had a drink and a piece of cake. At 2.45pm we went in and were able to see the birds in their enclosures. They have a good selection from... More

We had a very exciting and informative experience. The guide was very good. My 3 yr old was so excited to get the chance to hold 2 owls and a different bird species.

Suede gloves are provided so that birds can perch on you. Very informative and will be enjoyed by all ages. Even the 2 year old next to me was captivated when a bird... More
