Hands on experience with a range of birds of prey. Led by a very knowledgeable and entertaining falconer.

Handling the birds

It was a long time sitting in the cold But the falconer was lovely I would not have paid the full price to go

24 February 2014 Chris United Kingdom

Very good presentation by James, very informative and great to be hands on with the Birds

24 February 2014 DAVID United Kingdom

The Falconry experience was really interactive, James the falconer was extremely knowledgable and it was great value for money, highly recommended.

Cafe had great cakes and lovely cup of tea, playground area was good for our 5yr old, toilet facilities very good too.

30 September 2013 Yvonne United Kingdom

Lots of information. Friendly staff. Some 'hands on' experience with the birds. Silent fly past of an owl.

Rather a lot of standing around waiting. It was very hot on the day which made it virtually unbearable. We were only able to stay for 2 of the 3 hours because of the heat and probably missed the best bits. Would have been better with less people and therefore less time waiting around for your turn to 'hold' the birds etc.
