  • Great day learning about and handling Vultures, owls and Hawks. The rest of the party really enjoyed just looking around and the fantastic flying displays 
  • Wonderful place, amazing staff - would truly highly recommend going to enjoy and support their invaluable work 
  • A brilliant day out. There is plenty to watch and do to keep the family entertained with good quality good at reasonable prices. The shop has a good selection of gifts and souvenirs again at reasonable prices. Donations made go towards caring for these magnificent birds of prey.
  • We had an amazing experience and the 3 shows were out of this world i recommend that everyone should go and experience the day well worth every penny and more. The kids loved every minuet and we will be going again. Its not everyday you get to hold an owl, fly a Hawk and get so close to so many amazing birds 10/10 from us all.
  • My wife and I had a wonderful time last week. It is wonderful to get up close to the beautiful animals. The staff were first class. On arrival we were greeted by Lorna who combined happiness with professionalism. Ben who narrated a couple of the shows was one of the most enthusiastic people we have ever met. He bought the shows to life. The food is exactly what it is. Sausage, chips and beans at fair prices. You won't get a fillet steak and nor should you expect it. The staff in the restaurant were great fun and very helpful. Clean surroundings and plenty to do. Well done from us.
  • A really fascinating place. The staff are enthusiastic and knowledgeable, the birds the colourful stars. Seeing two huge bald eagles fly in to their handler from a couple of miles away is not something you will forget very soon. It's a great day out for all ages. There are several shows in different settings where the birds demonstrate their particular skills. Kids and adults get a chance to fly the birds themselves, a truly 'hands on' experience. And one of the best things is that, unlike other visitor attractions, you don't feel ripped off. Extras, like a tractor ride round the wild flower meadow, are free. There's a restaurant serving good food at very reasonable prices in an attractive, modern setting. I came away knowing far more about birds of prey, their different characteristics, and how things are for them in the world. Highly recommended.
  • We love to visit here. It's a fantastic family day out with plenty of birds to see. The flight displays are incredible and have always shown us something new each time. There are plenty of events throughout the year, we have enjoyed quiz nights and a murder mystery evening which were fantastic. All money goes towards the trust too. Great for kids, especially the duck race at weekends.
