Attraction details
Owner description: Gauntlet, Eagle & Vulture park is the largest bird of prey park in the Northwest of England. With over 120 birds of prey, ranging from the smallest owls to the worlds largest eagle and Vultures it really is a haven for animal lovers. Gauntlet has two daily shows at 12.30 and 3 during the months March-Oct and during the winter months weekends only. As well as our two daily displays we have vulture feeding and meet & greet. We have a large children's play area with plenty of room for picnics. We are on the same site as Fryers garden centre and you can leave at anytime and come back for our displays. For those wishing to get closer we have bird of prey experiences which are run 7 days a week throughout the year. This gives people the opportunity to handle and fly the birds.

Reviewed October 31, 2013

if you want a top day out I would recommend this. the other reviews are spot on. regular shows throughout the day, catch them all if you can. the birds fly very close to you, you get a real close look. doesn't take to long to walk round the cages, but taking in the shows makes it a good fun day. the garden next door is an option to visit as well.

“Excellent Value for Money”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

Took my Grandkids to this flying display and they loved it. The variety of birds was brilliant and the actual flying display was far better than any other that I have seen. They offer many different packages such as birthday party where the kids get involved more. Great value for money . Would certainly go back
