Not really, I found it quite disappointing and poor value

A number of rides for older children were not running. and the food was junk

02 November 2014 Ian United Kingdom

Not too busy, good variety of rides

29 October 2014 Alison United Kingdom

Impressive rides. A big little place.

22 October 2014 Anthony United Kingdom

The staff were lovely, and were very knowledgeable, it was a thoroughly enjoyable treat - the owls and other animals were well cared for and in lovely condition.

a very big thank you to the staff at the Falconry for the experience, we even had the bonus of seeing a family of buzzards (7 in total) circling overhead whilst we were handing the owls. I would definately recommend the Falconry to friends and family.
