“Wow”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

This was my 3rd visit and I am still blown away by the rapport the handlers have with these magnificent birds.
If you were wondering if it was worth it to have a hawk walk or handling session, the answer is a resounding yes.
Don't be put off by the tatty coffee shop and amatuerish reception system - once you get through to the bird area you will be in for a treat.
Bring a packed lunch and stay for all the displays as they are different at different times of day.

“Great Visit”
Reviewed February 3, 2013 via mobile

We visited here as a couple without our kids but I would have no hesitation in taking them there. I can see how the centre would appeal to school visits. The birds were fascinating, many of them I had never seen before and the lads who do the falconry display were really knowledgable. They entertained us with stories of the vultures swooping on bits of road kill and stopping nearby traffic during their exercise sessions, and seemed to really love the birds. The cafe was clean and reasonably priced and they made a good brew for a cold day. I would recommend this place to anyone. Genuinely a nice day out!
