During a week in London my family ventured out to fly these amazon birds. We all enjoyed our full day experience. The birds were fantastic and the staff was incredibly knowledgeable. The setting made it even better. Definitely the highlight our trip!
I really loved my first time at The Hawking Centre, so much so, I've been there another ten times since! It's what got me into Falconry and for that I'm very thankful. The centre is well located and the team there are very knowledgeable, they could answer every one of my questions. They've helped me in more ways than one, this review is the least I can do to repay them. The centre has grown a lot since I've been going, I'm very happy to see this. Recommended to anyone who's thinking of booking and you may even have the same reaction as me when I enter the bird shed (mews) for the first time, what are you waiting for? Bradley
