Must visit.

Flying displays are superb. Great learning opportunity. Very important conservation work being undertaken, breeding etc. What an experience to see such birds in open flight.

while on holiday myself and husband visited the ICBP and glad we did. The flying displays were very good and informative. Birds are well looked after. We had a drink and something to eat at the café which was very reasonably priced as was the shop. Friendly staff, we shall be returning. Keep up the good work

Was given a "Hawk Experience Day" for my birthday. Finally got to use it this November. Fortunately the weather was kind. The day included the chance to get up close and personal with many birds of prey and fly several from the hand. Which birds you get to handle changes according to the needs of the group you are with... More

This establishment has many owls and raptors from various parts of the world; both large and small. The flying displays are some of the best we have seen, with a good variance of birds used and excellent informative commentary. The onsite small restaurant serves the likes of jacket potatoes and other meals with quick service. However our jackets contained some... More

We were fortunatet o have a glorious August day for our visit. Arriving almost exactly at opening time, there was quite a queue but well worth the wait. Seeing all the birds in the Hawk Walk as you enter is quite a sight. As it was hot the caged birds were understandably flat but an impressive range to see, especially... More

This is our third visit to the ICBP and the owner (Jemima Parry-Jones) and her team never fail to deliver. The flying displays are both entertaining and informative, and we were lucky enough on this visit to watch a couple of the birds being trained between displays, though there was no commentary for this. With all the birds of prey... More

This turned out to be a wonderful day out for our 2 year old grandson. There were a several birds of prey out in the open to see and several in cages. There were three times for the flying displays with different birds out. The staff were excellent in describing the birds and where they hunt in their natural environment.... More

Spent a day with my Dad and two year old son. Not sure who enjoyed it most - grandad or grandson! The commentary and flights were amazing!

True to their name, they only display birds of prey and very good at that. From tiny Burrowing Owls to massive Condors, one can see the birds of prey found all over the world. Their flying displays (weather dependent of course) are top notch with excellent and engaging commentary. One to has see how the birds respond to the falconers... More

Took my dad today for his 64th birthday, had an absolutely wonderful day. I was expecting some kind of old farm with a few birds, this place is beyond belief. Absolutely stunning grounds, trees and setting. True experts who handle them. Lovely cafe too. My dad is also in a wheelchair and despite the gravel everywhere, there is great access/ramps/helpful...
