We visited Helmsley this weekend and whilst I was looking on the Visit Helmsley website I came across this new attraction, what a find. There are 100 birds kept in large Averie's that are very well kept and also have information boards that offer clear and concise information. You can tell everyone who works there is very passionate about the birds. At present there are two flying displays and in the summer this goes up to three, every display is different as they rotate the birds and the staff giving the displays are very knowledgeable and friendly and happy to answer questions. Another brilliant thing is that the entry fee of £8.00 per person also includes entry to the grounds of Duncolme Park so you can really make a day of it and walk around the many trails and come back for the flying displays at the set times. Sadly the attraction does not currently have a tearooms as the owners of the tearooms that was there had to close in Sept last year, tea/coffee and snacks are available but as your ticket allows you to go in and out as many times as you want during the day, you can easily pop into Helmsley for lovely fish and chips, ask in the shop and they will tell you about the discount that has just been set up with the fish and chip shop in Helmsley. A brilliant attraction, if your in the area please visit it's worth every penny.
