I have always wanted to interact with birds of prey and this was an amazing opportunity to learn about their habits and actually hold them on our arms. Extremely knowledgeable and caring staff. Highly recommend a stop here if you have time.

Chester Cathedral is a beautiful place full of history. When you are looking around you will find some unique items, one of these items is a picture painted on a spiders web.

Hello Penny There are flying displays daily - though it's best to call the Falconry Centre on Sunday morning simply to check what times will take place that day - 01244 699053. I hope that helps. Regards, Kevin
