Visited here with our 2 year old daughter. During the flying display the demonstration lady made sure our daughter got to hold and stroke an owl. The birds are beautiful and all the staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Will definitely go again.

You can visit the center at any time with your entry ticket, however, you can't start your visit, have a pass out for your afternoon tea and then finish off your visit.
