We booked the Flying Start experience here and had a great afternoon learning about and flying the birds. Our falconer, Chris, was really informative as he told us about the different birds and answered all of our questions. Over the hour long experience we got...More

We went here after visiting the Arboretum (located literally next door). It looked really quite small and far from plush, so we didn't have high expectations. How wrong we were! There was an extensive collection of owls, falcons, hawks and eagles, some tethered to perches,...More

Lots of fantastic beautiful birds, all seem happy and well cared for, informative guides, fun demonstrations, and the keepers really seem to care for the birds well being. Friendly staff, lovely local place. definitely worth popping in for a demonstration if you’re in the area

Absolutely great whole day out if you lovebirds of prey. Flying displays throughout the day are wonderful. See the birds up close. Even have them land on you if you wish to be a tree. The staff are really friendly.

Me and my husband visited here as people who appreciate birds but don’t necessarily know much about them. It was definitely a worthwhile trip, and amazing to see the eagles when you first go in. The range of birds is very impressive but by far...More

Sorry no dogs allowed in to the falconry centre. However, the Arboretum, Garden Centre and Café all on the same site here at Batsford are very dog friendly.
