We visited Radical Raptors with our 4 year old daughter. What an amazing experience. The guide is so enthusiastic about caring for these birds and it is important to note that this is not a zoo. It is a rehabilitation center. The interaction with the birds was fantastic and the adults were just as excited and in awe as the... More

Fortunately I read TA reviews as I was not really interested in seeing caged birds . What a good experience. All the birds are injured or foundlings and the Falconer passionate about his feathered charges . Watching the owls alighting on ones fist is a first and the Eagles superb .

A wonderful experience. The centre is run by an experienced falconer and his brother. We had the falconer's brother, and boy did he know his stuff. Luckily there were only four of us in the audience so we had lots of fly-to-the-glove experience with the Little Owl and Barn Owl. You are given an enlightening commentary which doesn't drop in...

The owner and his brother are such warm souls. There love of the birds is very apparent but the rate and number of releases into the wild is what really inspires. This is a sanctuary, not a zoo, not a money making scheme but trully a group of people doing something amazing for our wildlife.

Too be able to join these magnificent creatures in nature whilst learning interesting facts about them was an experience of a lifetime. Truly a must when in that area 👌

We visited with our extended family with 5 kids aged between 3 and 7. They all loved the show which was very informative. The adults also really enjoyed it.

Hi Chris, We are terribly sorry for your bad experience, but please realize that you have given Radical Raptors a bad rating. We are a rehab centre for birds of prey and are not any way linked to the restaurant. We work very hard to keep our people happy and our ratings good. Please reconsider rating us poorly for a...
