Recommend you get there for the demonstration, there is one at 2pm, may be other times so please check. If I’d have gone without seeing “show” I think I might have felt slightly ripped off at £7 per adult. In saying that with the demonstration...More

We'd read about the Birds of Prey Centre before we went off for our long weekend in Northumberland. We've been to bird of prey shows before and found them great fun. I was less sure about this visit after I learned that there wouldn't be...More

Despite a pretty cold and miserable day we had a fantastic visit. We’d recommend the owl experience for lots of time with the birds. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable and enthusiastic.

No way, you must be joking. Would you be allowed to bring your dog to a zoo or wildlife park? The answer is no, for obvious reasons. When we were there, there were a couple of dogs outside the gate. How could they ever risk... More
