Really enjoyed our visit to Andy Howey's Bird of Prey Centre. Juanita and Ben were full of interesting information about the varied animals they took out to show us. Despite the fact it seemed to be a busy day, no one felt rushed and both handlers put emphasis on everyone getting a chance to hold/meet the animals - including any... More

I read about this attraction on Trip Advisor and E mailed the owners about prices and timings. I got a prompt reply that a family ticket costs £20 and there was a show at 11 am. It was not easy to find as it is a private enterprise and Haven do not allow large signs ( taking away customers and... More

We visited on the first week of opening and the weather was awful so no shows were taking place, however we were still welcomed in on a donation basis and were treated to encounters with some of the animals and 2 owls were flown inside which was fantastic. The birds/animals are all really well kept and the staff are highly... More

Lovely way to spend an hour, kids got to touch a skink, a hedgehog and a tarantula, too early for the bird displays but a great experience all the same, thank you :)
