Well run Falconry centre with a large number of birds of prey. Run display sessions very regularly and send off huge eagles into the Cotwolds countryside. Good fun, lighthearted edutainment. Recommend a visit even if your a cynical, grumpy person like myself.

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.
