Fantastic gift
31 May 2021
This experience was something I had always wanted to do. It did not disappoint! What an absolutely brilliant afternoon, couldn’t have asked for better weather and the birds were beautiful. The setting at Moore Grange Farm just outside Buxton was stunning! Carly, the handler, was so informative and good fun, which made the afternoon with all the gorgeous birds. Marmite the Barn Owl, Solo the Harris Hawk, Morgan the Kestrel , Simba the Tawny Owl, Denver the Bald Eagle, Wow! He was big! Carly also showed us the birds from the morning display. Would highly recommend this experience to anyone who loves birds and would like the opportunity to hold these incredible creatures. I will always remember this wonderful afternoon. Thank you

Organisation leaves something to be disired
13 February 2019
Got the request to review the experience before Ive been..indeed the day after I'd finally been able to book the date. Organisationally the booking system doesn't leave me with confidence. Took 6 weeks to get date choices, then the first choice wasn't actually available, wrong dates on the website. You can't email the booking folk and i had to call x 2 to eventually get clear what the booking options were. Hopefully the actual day will be better... Also note that I was brought a 'Bird of Prey' experience but actually whats on offer is a 'Falconry Experience' so I presume it'll be the one species we'll be seeing.

Good falconry experience

If you like birds you will like this experience. The instructor was very knowledgeable and passionate about his birds. It was great to see them fly, have a bird land on you and getting up close.

Really good experience
15 October 2017
Bought this as a gift for my Grandads birthday. We thought it was great. The experience was really informative, we learned lots of about different types of birds of prey. You got chance to handle the birds briefly but due to the large group it was only for a short time. However, it was still a fantastic day. Just make sure you wrap up warm in the winter!! We learned the hard way!
