This is something that I have always wanted to do and it exceeded all of my expectations. It was a "meet the birds" experience and as I happened to be the only one booked onto it, it was a private experience. Andy was extremely knowledgeable and made the experience fantastic.

Boys spent 1.5hours with Falconry expert. Learnt about many different Owls, falcon and other birds they have there. Wore the Gauntlet and had two Birds of prey land on their arms. Finished with a warm drink and got to hear about experience. You have to pay also if you want to watch , which is a bit of a surprise,... More

Booked a "meet the birds" experience at Cheshire Falconry, what an amazing experience it was. Up close and personal with 6 different birds of prey, nothing was rushed, each bird flew onto your glove 4 or 5 times each. Robert looked after us he was very knowledgeable and funny, the information he was giving us was amazing. I could not... More

Fab place to visit for a family although some parts of it weren't open it still made our day and there was loads to see and do with the kids, they loved the birds, mini golf and the rest of it great place for a full family day out. Highly recommend it.

We booked the full day at the centre. The team were great fun and gave lots a information on the birds, their care and environment in the wild. We had the opportunity to handle several birds in a paddock area which was a relaxed and safe environment for the visitors and more importantly the birds. We spent the afternoon walking... More

Went with my work colleagues for a team-building day and had the best time ever! We did archery, shooting, bird handling bushcraft and segway. The staff are brilliant. Tentative, patient, funny, knowledgeable and safe. I highly recommend this attraction located at Blakemere with free parking too.

Wow! We found it by chance while walking on Chester walls - the entrance is only £3 and they do some shows that involve feeding birds of prey - they basically let them free and allow the bird to stretch the wings and then dive back! Absolutely great experience. It's not long but it was enough to be amazed. It... More

I have no clue why this places has negative reviews. You get to handle birds of prey for 3£! I loved it and would definitely come back to do it again
