  • One of the best days out ever! If I lived nearer I would never leave! Beautiful location, helpful, friendly staff, amazing birds. The demos are fantastic, the last one we saw ended with 6 kites! They flew close to the audience, even landing on a ladies handbag! You can also learn so much about the birds and how to save them from extinction. Lastly excellent value for money 🦉🦅
  • I loved it here, seeing all the amazing birds was brilliant. The flying demonstrations where absolutely fantastic funny and informative. There are lots of funny signs about so keep an eye out for them as well. We had lunch at the cafe which was lovely. Would recommend to everyone brilliant day
