Lovely guys working there. True passion for what they're doing. Had a very educational visit. Stroked a few of the owls and was able to each feed a falcon as was quiet. The guys made the visit with their unlimited knowledge and willingness to answer all our questions. Can't wait to go back in the summer and see their birds... More

We were able to go to the Bird of Prey Centre as part of the Winter Wonderland ticket. We landed there on the way out and the Staff were amazing. As they were near to closing up they spent so much time with us. My daughter got to stroke a number of owls nd we all got to learn some... More

This wasn't our first visit to the centre and we had another great time. The birds are interesting and the staff are knowledgeable and want to help the kids to enjoy and learn. It's expensive but a good place to support.

Firstly and most importantly, the birds are extremely well looked after. I was lucky to have visited on a quiet day. I got my many questions answered without any delay and the young lad who'd taken my entrance fee (£7) was just bursting at the seems with his knowledge of each bird. He knew each and every bird personally. I... More

Went for a visit with my wife and we were so impressed with the facility and the knowledge of the bird handlers. Both handlers were extremely approachable and demonstrated a genuine warmth for all of the animals. Their enthusiasm was heartwarming and they both really made you feel part of the whole show. We were given multiple opportunities to handle... More

Its been a very long time since we last visited the Birds of Prey Centre and we were definitely not disappointed. Staff were fantastic and educated us on how the birds are let out every day to fly free and then return for food. We were introduced to some tiny owls which were beautiful and stroked their heads. Great visit
