A wide range of birds of prey with very well-informed staff keen to share their knowledge. It is very near to a good garden centre and arboretum with a nice café.

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.
