A very pleasant woodland environment but Birds of Prey centre has changed very much since my last visit. Previously most of the birds were outside on small perches making them easy to see and photograph. This visit they were all inside cages with only a small section at the top to see the bird providing it was at the top.... More

A beautiful setting for woodland walks around many lakes and small ponds. The raptor display was fun and informative, (with the two Kara-Kara's - George and Mildred, and Colin the owl, very funny and interesting. We visited towards the end of April, but will definitely return in the summer with a picnic.

Simply amazing! We visited on the last day of the Easter Hols. We did the Easter egg hunt and had a picnic. Loads to see and do for the entire day. They do Forces discount which is always good 😊. Such a stunning well maintained place, the animal section is fantastic and clean. The little birds nest cafe near the... More

Lovely day out. The meer cats and wallabies were delightful, even saw a baby joey coming out from mum's pouch.

Enjoy talking my son here. The play area is very good, lots of birds to see and the wallabys are very friendly. Took out the years pass on first visit.

Always on the hunt for somewhere new to visit with the family, I had seen friends had visited here and we decided to try it out. It was a lovely day out, with some beautiful blossom on the trees and a large area to explore - just what the children needed to blow off some steam during the second week... More

On our way north we paused to visit Thorp Perrow Arboretum. Not knowing what to expect we were thrilled with what we found. The gardens and trees were immaculate, the lake with the house as a backdrop spectacular and the falconry an unexpected thrill. Colin the owl is magnificent and I could have watched him all day. Extra excitement was... More

I could happily spend many weekends here as it is so beautiful. Took youngest son and a friend who is keener than the Xbox than the outdoors but he was converted by the bird shows and particularly enjoyed seeing the marabou stork walking to heel! The wallabies were as usually a pleasure to feed and stroke, especially the one with... More

I have just returned from a birthday celebration stay in Richmond and visited Thorp Perrow on Sunday. What a lovely find it is! The gardens are beautiful, with walks amongst tree lined paths with lakes and ponds. The birds of prey demonstration was informative and enjoyable and it is possible to book a session with the handlers for a hands... More
