A different day out there are hundreds of beautiful birds here. There are shows throughout the day with fun talks for the family. The birds are well kept (and behaved). There is a lovely cafe and gift shop. A cheap afternoon out for the family.

Went there in October and it was one of the best places we have visited. The staff were amazing and the birds were obviously well looked after and loved. The demonstrations were wonderful. I really recommend visiting as we had a great time

I visited with work colleagues as a different kind of Christmas party. Our Friday evening owl experience was fantastic. It included a tour of the aviaries, refreshments and indoor and outdoor flying displays. The staff were very knowledgeable and we learnt a lot about these amazing birds. A must for anyone with an interest in the natural world.

A must for anyone interested in Birds Of Prey. The staff were all brilliant and informative, and all of the falconers showed an unrivalled bond with their beautiful birds, as well as true passion in welfare and conservation. The flying displays were amazing, with the lady in charge making us laugh with her witty humour and wealth of knowledge. All... More

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
