Lovely place with friendly staff. Nice selection of birds, hawks and owls. Including a golden eagle which is very impressive. Just a little small that's all. Nice though and great for the little uns.

We've visited several similar bird of prey centres in the past and although it was still great to see the various collection of birds here, it was perhaps a little over-priced. The birds there included kestrels, buzzards, eagles and owls. At £8 each per adult...More

We'd read such good reviews about this but they were clearly all from people who'd bought an 'experience'. It's good as far as it goes but is very limited for the casual visitor. Positives- you see the birds up close and the keepers are engaging....More
