Spent about 2 hours watching this interesting display and explanation of the falcons. The gentleman working with the birds was very entertaining and we did enjoy the outing. I'm sure it would have been much more enjoyable on a warm day. After the cold and...More

We unfortunately chose an awful day, chilly and dreadfully wet but despite this, we enjoyed our visit. We decided to have a light lunch before the flying display so they helpfully waited until we were finished before starting. The food was very good and served...More

I visited the centre with my family last month and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was our second visit. The talk and demonstration absolutely make this trip: in my opinion, they’re what make the entrance fee good value for money. It’s important, therefore, to consider the...More

Small, quirky café onsite which was nice. Would only recommend going when flying display is to start as not much to look at in way of walking round. Flying display was excellent with a very knowledgeable and fun handler. You can also have a go...More

We were travelling along the road from Windemere and were heading towards the A66 and home, but when we saw the sign for a bird of prey centre, we were too tempted to give it a miss - after all, we live in Norfolk, and...More

Visited the bird of prey centre today. We were very impressed with all the information we were given during the flying of the birds. We also had lunch in the tea room which we also enjoyed. All in all a very enjoyable day out.

Sorry, only just seen this question, hope I'm not too late. I think you would be ok with a wheel chair, it's all one level but you would have to go over short grass to view the display. The cafe is quite small so you may... More
