This experience was for my wife's birthday. She was delighted with the whole afternoon. It started with cuddling a gorgeous little owl and ended with an eagle on a glove. The woodland walk was magical with a Harris Hawk. The staff's knowledge and enthusiasm made it an afternoon to remember for a long time.

We arrived at the Centre and parked easily. We were collected from reception by Sarah, who was our owl handler and guide. She took us to the Falconry area and we were given a brief introduction to the birds and Sarah explained what we could expect.
There were only only 6 of us, and we each had multiple turns at flying Dizzy our beautiful owl companion for the day. Everyone just spent the whole walk grinning! There was plenty of time to ask questions, and take photos and video of Dizzy flying, both in woodland and across a pond.
Sarah was friendly and very knoweldgeable, the walk was just long enough. I cannot recommend this experience too highly. It was great value for money and I would do it again tomorrow.

Was bought this as a present and had a fantastic time. Sarah and Emily were great - really friendly and relaxed, helpful, knowledgeable and made the whole thing great fun. The birds are fantastic, and seeing them in a more natural habitat on the woodland walk is really interesting.
