We visited here in Oct 2012. Very nice attraction, lots of owls and birds + small reptile house. At noon a flying display took place in the grounds. Staff very knowledgeable about the birds. Only minus would be we fancied a coffee and snack afterwards but no member of staff around so went somewhere else. Note: outdoor kennels for the dog if you need them. Would recommend.

This is a great day out for the whole family, but probably not babes or toddlers. The birds are well looked after. The talks are very interesting and the flying displays are great. The cafe could be better but I did not go there for the food!

we had a great time on sunday 30th september 2012, doing the 2 hour owl experience which we obtained through groupon. The staff very very nice, we held many different owls and were able to take lots of photos, we also went into the field to fly the owls which was great. thanks once again to you and all the staff for an enjoyable time.

We visited last week with our daughter, son in law and 2 year old granddaughter. We arrived just in time to see the lizard, snake and spiders brought out into the viewing area by one of the handlers who was very informative and interesting. Our 2 year old granddaughter was fascinated by the reptiles and the tarantula. It was amazing to see them so close up, and learn about their habits and how they came to be cared for here at the centre. Anyone who is a bit squeamish can stand at the back and view from a distance!!
We then had time to wander round the various display areas before the bird of prey display which was again very interesting and the birds were amazing to see at close quarters, as they sweep past. the handler also brought the birds round and allowed them to perch on the fence close to the spectators.
We made use of the picnic tables outside to eat our lunch, and all agreed we'd learnt a lot, and had a great experience.
