Had a fantastic time, spent almost two and a half hours watching the display, Bob the Harris hawk was a particular highlight. Tea rooms were good, homemade scones and a good selection of cakes. Well worth the visit and we would love to come back!

It’s a good to see such fantastic birds in action and in full flight without any restrictions. The presenter could have showed more birds or should have shown the falcons for a shorter time.

We visited the centre a few days ago and thoroughly enjoyed the flying display. It was entertaining and also educational, we both left having felt that we'd learnt something. We also visited the tea room for a drink and scones. These were homemade and very...More

Spent about 2 hours watching this interesting display and explanation of the falcons. The gentleman working with the birds was very entertaining and we did enjoy the outing. I'm sure it would have been much more enjoyable on a warm day. After the cold and...More

I visited with two kids aged 8 & 9. I used a Groupon voucher which was well worth it. The day started damp and overcast, but the sun came out later. I have visited lots of falconry centres up and down the UK, but this...More

We unfortunately chose an awful day, chilly and dreadfully wet but despite this, we enjoyed our visit. We decided to have a light lunch before the flying display so they helpfully waited until we were finished before starting. The food was very good and served...More

Visited this week with our 3 year old and we were very disappointed with the visit. The 'centre' consists of a walled garden where there are around 15 or so small enclosures with a couple of birds in each. You can walk around all the...More

They have a variety of birds of pray but you can basically see everything in half an hour. The bird show is worth a look from 2pm but get there early and there's not much to see. Too expensive for what it is. Half the...More

I visited the centre with my family last month and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was our second visit. The talk and demonstration absolutely make this trip: in my opinion, they’re what make the entrance fee good value for money. It’s important, therefore, to consider the...More

Small, quirky café onsite which was nice. Would only recommend going when flying display is to start as not much to look at in way of walking round. Flying display was excellent with a very knowledgeable and fun handler. You can also have a go...More

Sorry, only just seen this question, hope I'm not too late. I think you would be ok with a wheel chair, it's all one level but you would have to go over short grass to view the display. The cafe is quite small so you may... More
