“Mark is Outstanding!”

Battlefield Falconry Centre
Ranked #1 of 88 things to do in Shrewsbury
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 6 April 2018

We had the best experience this past March while visiting the Shropshire area. Mark was so knowledgeable and friendly. Just a "full-out, mind-blowing" activity for the whole family. Our 3 kids all agree that if we had only done this Hawk Walk and then flew directly back home to Canada the trip would have been a success. We can't rave enough about the Battlefield Falconry Centre. Thanks so much!

Had an amazing time learning about these amazing birds. Went on the hawk walk which was really interesting, have always wanted to spend a day hawking, so this gave me a taste of that. The hawk even made a kill too! Loved every minute of it, plus Mark and all the staff were so friendly and obviously love what they do. A must for all those who love birds of prey and the countryside.

Both the hawk walk and owl handling were amazing. You get to feed the hawk which was great, and the owner told us lots of facts along the way. Me and my partner really enjoyed it. Would recommend for all ages.

What a great experience! Me and my wife went on a hawk walk yesterday and had a truly amazing time. Being out in the countryside and having such a personal experience with the hawk was unique and very special. There was plenty of time to handle the hawk and Mark provided lots of knowledge on the area and birds. Excellent value for money....we were not rushed and Mark did not mind that the walk went well over the time. A day we will always remember and will definitely return with friends. Thank you

Mark and Val run an excellent business. To interact with a wild creature is not a typical experience. The birds are lovely to look at and the walk itself is exhilarating. Mark's knowledge of the area adds a new dimension to the experience.
Do not go if
* you don't like animals
* you don't want to enjoy the outdoor experience
* you don't want to learn some history
* you don't like seeing the joy of hunting dogs in the field
* you don't want to come away feeling that life if great!
