This is an experience not to be missed and I can't recommend it enough! You are made to feel right at home with Barry and Luce in the Welsh Hills and are given a glimpse of their lives caring for their magnificent feathered friends. Rather than having that commercial feel, Falconry Experience Wales is committed to conservation and education, you are really shown the love Barry and Luce have for their birds. The information they provide is in depth and I learnt so much from them both that day. The range of birds flown that day and time spent interacting with them was fantastic. I will definitely be making another visit here in the future! A 5* day out!

We went to this place situated in the middle of nowehere last weekend. We had a very warm welcome from Barry & Lucy and started the morning with a cup of tea and look around. In doing so we found a racoon Lucy had rescued when it was rejected by it's mother which was a nice surprise to find other animals than birds.
The knowledge of the birds both had was amazing and never came across a question that they couldn't answer. It was a nice day weather-wise which really helped as you are outside all day. You get to handle the birds and learn all about them throughout the day which went on for an hour longer than scheduled.
The setiing is ideallic with the only motor heard all day from a helicopter flying overhead. It was a great day and after having learned a lot and had a lot of fresh air we were happy to get home and relax. Would reccommend to anyone who has an interest in wild birds. You don't need to handle them as you can just get close and photograph if having them fly near you is not your cup of tea.

What an excellent day out. The owners Barry & Luce so obviously love the raptors and thier job and put information across in a really enjoyable & friendly way. Great to handle such a variety of birds and to see thier wild cousins around too! We will definately be taking other family members there and going again. Fantastic experience. Have been to other centres where you get much less time handling the birds.

Had a great afternoon. Luce and Barry are hugely knowledgeable and made the afternoon a great success. They are genuinely committed to the conservation of birds of prey and shared their knowledge with us all. I had this as a birthday present and can't thank the givers enough!!!

After several cancellations due to poor weather, we were finally able to attend our long awaited experience. Luce and Baz are extremely friendly and knowledgeable about raptures. We had a very thorough, hands on experience with the birds which was very enjoyable as at other venues you don't get nearly as much time handling the animals. One of the things that set Luce and Baz apart from other handlers is that they both have very strong relationships with their birds and you can tell how much time, training and dedication is needed to achieve such connections. I highly recommend this experience!
