Brilliant experience and for a reasonable £10 for a half hour group session. Our 7 year old loved it! Highly recommend. The staff are all very friendly and knowledgeable too. Lovely to see a sanctuary where they are flown so often

A great variety of owls to see and they regularly have an owl on a 'fly-around' where you can take photos and see the owl close up. For an extra £10 per person you can actually take part in the fly-around and hold the owl.
