  • Lovely day even though raining heavy so no flying, staff brilliant very friendly loaded with information. Chap we had talking through everything was really good, this was a present for husband from our children, had an enjoyable experience so now wants to go back for more. Can be difficult to locate, head into Best Weston car park & it's behind the hotel. Cafe small but food good & hot drinks reasonably priced toilets basic but adequate. Yes we need to go again lovely.
  • Despite the very poor British summer rainy weather, the team here put on a good show with the birds of prey. Seeing them flying up close and personal and also getting to handle various birds. Animals looked well looked after and staff were knowledgeable and friendly. We were even offered replacement tickets to return when the weather was better! I envisage the aerial display being even better when sunny 😎
  • We spent over 3 hours there and could easily have spent longer! Very friendly and relaxed team who obviously love their work and their birds. We watched one of the demonstrations and did the Hawk Walk with just our group of four with Neil and it was excellent. We had fun, got educated and were able to interact with the gorgeous birds. Highly recommend it for all ages... and reasonably priced. Parking was easy and there was a small cafe so all our needs were covered!
  • Amazing animals day and staff. 100% exceeded expectations for price amazing value for money. Would return.
  • There are lots of different kinds of Birds of prey here...we went on both talks...The Owner and Staff are super knowledgeable what they don't know about Birds of Prey isn't worth knowing, informative, educational, entertaining they obviously love the Birds and what they do there, it's a credit to them...everyone gets an opportunity to meet the Birds and watch them fly...the entrance fee is £9 per adult, not sure for kids, we stayed at the hotel next door, so we had two tickets from them, that the Bird of prey centre provide them with...we did however make a decent donation as it was well worth the visit...cafe onsite providing tea, coffee, sandwiches and cake...lovely place.
