  • We enjoyed a great day, very professionally run, super friendly very knowledgeable staff. Very clean and tidy. The birds were amazing and the shows not to be missed. A fantastic place to visit for all ages. Well worth the entry fee. We will visit again when next in the UK.
  • We love this place! A natural, educational day out. Staff are passionate and friendly. Really well thought out and well-spaced talks and demonstrations with a gap for lunch. Keeps you occupied and interested all day. Kids love stamping the passports too.
  • We visited as a group of eight, with four children aged 2,2,4, and 5 all of then loved the birds; but it was the enthusiasm and quality of the staff and their charges during the three events that we watched that were really impressive. Suffice to say that if you'd like to see Eagles, Hawks, and Vultures flying close by, and often just centimeters from your heads (seriously, you're told to duck!) then this is the place to do it! Friendly staff, clearly very knowledgeable and passionate, and, a lovely little cafe round the park out. There's a small playground for under 14s and a well thought through treasure hunt. We'd recommend it.
  • Went on a cool damp day today with my 9 year old. Thoroughly enjoyable venue and magnificent birds. Excellent displays too. Well worth the trip.
  • A great day out and a lot to see, with many birds of prey watch perform in displays. The staff are very friendly and helpful. With very reasonable entry price's for all, so it's a relatively cheap day out. Plus, you are helping the conservation of birds of prey around the world as well as at home here in the UK.
