Reviewed December 8, 2014

Although a cold day, we were warned to be prepared, in case it was, it was not just interesting for us adults, but the children with us (ages 6, 9 10) were not only fascinated, but learned a lot. Made the cold seem less somwhow. Flying the Birds was amazing and the afternoon finished with a walk in the woods with a Hawk, which followed us like a dog would! Although we started at 10:00 and finished at 3:00pm, it didn;t seem like it. Probably helped by the owner, who knows his subject and is very enthusiastic - at least it made up for his jokes! Definitely go if you can

I had a reunion with some of my college friends of 40 years standing. The morning at the centre admiring and flying the birds was one of the most memorable occasions of my life. The birds were majestic in all ways with their demeanour strength and beauty. Flying them was a privilege. The owner who was our guide and with his knowledge, humour and understanding added to the attraction. Additionally by managing to insult all the members with his barb like wit. A great morning from start to finish

Even though we came on a very cold winters day, it was still a good visit. I loved seeing the birds and watching them been flown for exercise. The centre does lots to educate about the birds and the guides/staff were so nice to us. They took the time to talk with us and asked if we wanted to know anything, or ask any questions. They let us watch them do practice exercises with the peregrine falcon and the hovercopter in the nearby field.

I was given a half-day experience at the Falconry Centre as a birthday present. The centre is small but does have quite a number of birds. The day started with a tour and talk about the various hawks, eagles, owls etc. Then, after a cup of tea, we participated in flying 8 different birds of prey. All in all a great experience facilitated by a very knowledgeable member of staff.

Brought a half day bird handling experience for my dads 70th birthday and my son,s 12th birthday. Had to wait a few months to book a weekend session but had a fantastic day. They flew 8 birds in total to the glove, ranging from a kestrel to an eagle owl. Tea, coffee and biscuits provided at the start and half way through for a quick break. Staff are fantastic and you can tell they love their job and the birds. If you like birds of prey this is a great present to buy somebody, the centre is open everyday except Christmas and New Year's Day I believe, you will love it.
