  • My daughter and I visited the Bird of Prey centre in late October and we were extremely impressed. It was freezing cold but there was a nice warm cafe. The birds are in cages around a large field.....  more »

  • AMAZING. The food was lovely. Gluten free and veggie options as well as a variety of lovely home bakes. The birds are all well cared for and the talk was FASCINATING. We were held spellbound for two whole hours watching the birds. Could not recommend enough.
  • My husband dragged our kids and I to this centre for a TWO hour presentation/tour. We were not looking forward to it. So glad he ignored our protests as the tea and cake (raspberry ripple) was delicious and the presentation felt like 30 minutes. He is so funny and very interesting and engaging. Would suggest for anyone, alone or with family to go visit!
  • Visited on Tuesday 28th July. Fantastic day. Very kind people. Took brother who is autistic and loves birds. He was made very welcome and was included in flying display. He has never stopped talking about it since. Amazing experience. Handler Paul was very informative about all the birds. Also very funny. Karen's cakes are amazing. Thank you for an excellent day out.
  • We really enjoyed our visit to the centre today , Paul the falconer made us laugh with all his stories , you can tell he enjoys his job even though he says not ! The birds are beautiful I held the Harris hawk with the glove , gorgeous , and the eagle owl was lovely . It's value for money you learn a lot , we recommend this place x
  • Well worth the visit. The birds are magnificient and you get plenty of info....more than you wished for at times but doing that everyday, I'd probably tell you my life story too. Eagles, owls, falcons and plenty of others. Small Cafe there too if you want a quick bite. Cakes, coffee and tea.
