  • An amazing day out! 3 different bird of prey flying displays per day unlike any others we have ever seen. The Hawk Conservancy is the best bird of prey centre we have visited in the UK. The variety of flying birds is superb and part of the displays were set to music which was incredibly moving. The birds often fly low over the audience (prepare to duck!) and this makes you feel very immersed in the display. This was our 3rd visit and it just keeps getting better! Knowing you are also contributing to their fantastic conservation work is an added benefit. Lovely food in the Feathers Restaurant and enthusiastic friendly staff throughout.
  • Brilliant afternoon. As few people due to cold weather we had almost one to one experience. Beautiful birds kept in great enclosures. Children loved the activities. Highly recommended.
  • They do a wonderful job on conservation here. They highlight the plight of vultures and other birds that are on the endangered list, which is essential if we want to preserve these different breeds for generations to come. The flying display is beautiful and the birds of prey fly to music. Wonderful experience for all of the family. Highly recommend!
  • Had a fabulous day out here. The staff are so knowledgeable and work together as a team. The flying displays by all sorts of exotic birds of prey our out of this world. Well worth a visit, excellent value for money especially if you stay all day. Cafe good too as was the gift shop.
  • We had an amazing day there with our 4 year old son, as we were visiting a relative who was having a birthday party there. They have lots of different and interesting birds of prey to see and learn about. The flight shows were fantastic with the birds very close. If was amazing to watch them in action. The staff were extremely knowledgeable, friendly and fun. The place is very child friendly and we would definitely recommend it to everyone. Plus it is good to know that your money is going to great causes of conservation for these endangered species of wild birds.
