Wonderful displays of flying birds. Very attractive surroundings. Many different types of birds from all over the world. Good shop. Nice restaurant. Obviously well cared for birds. Would love to go again.

Spent a Sunday afternoon at the centre, such amazing birds and so many to see, the flying display and was brilliant, seeing the owner tell a young owl off and then the very handsome Alex running around I guess sometimes wishing he had wings

A great day out for the family. Many birds of prey on show, together with flying demonstrations. On this visit, a highlight was the baby condor which is a huge ball of fluff and is very attached to its handler.
