Well if I could give more star rating I would !!

What a fantastic morning with Steve & Lisa such lovely people very down to earth and great with the Birds.

We had booked the Owl Experience and due to the weather thought it may be cancelled but they have the indoor area which was great. We got plenty of time with them and took lots of photos ( we checked we could do this before hand so not to upset the Owls) we also learnt alot you about them you can see how much they are cared for.

Thank you so much Steve & Lisa for a lovely morning hubby was so made up 👍😊



Absolutely Fantastic Day
July 2023
Although living not that far away from a Bird of Prey Sanctuary in Hampshire I decided I would take Jessops one day course up in Wem, to the Shropshire Falconry.
Although it was a long drive from where I live it was well worth the effort. Peter Walker from Jessops Academy greeted us at the gate and we where given our Covid briefing and then our Health & Safety Brief. We where then introduced to Lisa and then Steve who in 5 minutes made you realise that not only was it going to be fun but that they loved what they did and the various birds of prey in their care. We had ample time to photograph the individual birds doing various things from flying and perched. Peter was always on hand to help with any technical queries or advice on best settings for your camera. I came away with hundreds of great photos, memories and advice on photography. Absolutely brilliant day.



Incredible Experience

Sep 2023 • Couples
Shropshire falconry is a must visit if you have even a mild interest in birds. Steve and Lisa are wonderful hosts, they are really down to earth friendly people and their passion for birds shines through. Steve and Lisa both really take their time to get to know you and I felt incredibly comfortable. I am usually a very anxious person but I was so at ease.
I met 7 different birds and they were all so well trained and had lovely temperaments. The bonds they had with Steve and Lisa were incredible and you could tell how passionate they both are at what they do.
They conspired with my (now) fiance and orchestrated an unforgettable marriage proposal with the ring being flown over to me by Mojo the Owl and of course, I said yes. It was a wonderful experience that I will remember for the rest of my life.
Thank you again Steve and Lisa for making our engagement the most special moment.



Hawk Walk Experience
Aug 2023

I booked a hawk walk experience for two for my father’s birthday present at Hawkstone Park.

Steve met us promptly – the walk was about 1-2 hours, kindly tailored not to be too strenuous (for our needs), but still a beautiful stroll through woodland with lots of flying opportunities.

The experience is one of the best things we have ever done! Steve was so personable, friendly and easy to get along with. He is incredibly knowledgeable about birds and wildlife in general. There wasn’t a question he couldn’t answer and he also told us fascinating history of birds of prey as well as the story behind some well known phrases!

Our hawk for the walk (Ivan) was in beautiful condition. It was really important to me that we chose a company that clearly cared about the birds, took excellent care of them and had a genuine passion for their welfare and conservation. Steve (and Ivan!) definitely demonstrated this.

What a fantastic experience – highly recommended and a huge thank you to Steve and Ivan for creating such a special experience for me and my father to share.


 Hawk Walk was Brilliant

Dec 2023
Absolutely fantastic morning with Steve out ‘walking’ with two of his Harris Hawks. You could tell from the start he was immensely knowledgeable, loved his birds and what he does and he went out of his way to make us feel comfortable and explain exactly what we would be doing and what to expect. We had about an hour in some woodland around Hawkstone Park and were able to see the birds in ‘their’ environment which was great as well as holding them/ feeding them as we walked around. It was so relaxed, a brilliant experience and Steve could not have done more to ensure we thoroughly enjoyed our time. Never thought I would have the chance to do something like this and cannot recommend it highly enough.


Groupon Experience Amazing Experience
Aug 2023

Had an incredible time doing the owl experience at Shropshire Falconry. It was brilliant! We were guided through by Lisa and Steve – who have brilliant energy and loads of combined knowledge.

Location was difficult to find at first (not their fault!) – don’t use Apple Maps… use Google Maps!

The experience went SO quickly! It would have been great to have an option for a longer ‘hands-on’ experience , however they have amazing Hawk Walks that we’d love to do next time.

Lisa and Steve are amazing people – they are so passionate and inspiring. Well done for all you do guys. You’re amazing! X


Hawkstone Follies Hawk Walk
Aug 2023
Last evening we had a most enjoyable walk in the company of two Harris hawks
Karl and Ezra together with their humans Lisa and Steve. Our group consisted two teenage grand daughters, my wife and myself.
The woodland around Hawkstone Park is very suitable for the activity as the birds
can fly free into the trees and then swoop down when a gloved hand offers a titbit.
It is obvious that both Lisa and Steve care very much for the birds in their care some
of which have been rescued.
In conclusion one of the best one and a half hours the four of us have spent in a long time


Fantastic day out at Shropshire Falconry
Apr 2022 • Friends
Recently enjoyed a fabulous day at Shropshire Falconry at a photography group event organised by Jane Burkinshaw of Love your Lens. Lisa and Steve were our fantastic hosts. They gave us lots of information about bird behaviour and it was evident that the welfare of the birds is their paramount concern. They ensured everyone was able to take as many photographs as they wanted to of birds in portrait and in flight, and Jane was on hand to provide 1:1 support as required with camera settings etc. Highly recommended, I will definitely return.

Carly Rhodes 1st May 2019

Thank you Lisa for such a fantastic experience with my Year 4 class at Peckforton Castle on Friday. It was an experience they will never forget! Each child was able to hold and fly the birds and they learnt lots from you. Wouldn’t hesitate to book again for next year


Kim Huby Feb 11th 2019

Attended the Owl experience yesterday. Lisa & Steve were a hoot (excuse the pun!) The Owls were stunning and we could see how dedicated they both are to all the birds and their welfare with the amount of hours they put in with them. We learnt so much as well as handling them. Would highly recommend a visit. Thank you both for a lovely morning ☺️


Emma Buckley 2nd Feb 2019

We have had Shropshire falconry visit our school twice this year and they are wonderful! Really engaging for the children, lots of wonderful birds, very knowledgable, a great afternoon. Would highly recommend!


Sue Watmore Jan 6th 2019

Such a fabulous experience with the owls today. All of them have such cheeky personalities, couldn’t possibly pick a favourite.
Lisa the Falconer is brilliant, she had so much information to impart.
She also didn’t rush the experience, we were still there half an hour after the finish time.
I highly recommend this place


Malcom Tidy Jan 12th 2019

Linda and I had a great morning with Steve, on a Hawk Walk. Milo and Stanley are 2 beautiful Harris Hawks and they entertained us for the whole time.
Would definitely recommend Shropshirefalconry and we will be booking again in the New Year.
Thanks again to Steve and Lisa


Ian Harris  May 23rd 2019

I had fantastic time at the photography day on the 18th May
If you wish to learn about these wonderful birds and get some great photos
Steve and Lisa have a vast amount of knowledge and experience and are truly passionate about there work
Already signed up for my next visit


Karen Louise Shaw  March 2019

Bought an owl experience for my 11 yr old son for Christmas. When we arrived my husband decided to have a go too. I was nervous but with Lisa’s encouragement I gave it a go.
What an amazing experience, and doing it as a family is a great memory for us all.
Many thanks again Lisa & Steve


Kirsty Fleetwood Sept 15th 2019

Thank you for making my daughters falconry experience at Boots and Roots today so fantastic. To capture a five year olds attention for an hour of her day (especially when there was so much going on around her) was a real achievement. “Picking through pellets to find mouse skulls” and “holding Gizmo” were her highlights, she was also proud to show off her owl drawing skills when she got home. Thank you!


Cheryl Thomas 5th March 2019

Shropshire Falconry did a group visit with The Telford Gateway Club. It was fantastic. Lisa & Steve were really lovely with the group who were able to interact with the birds, hold them, see them fly & learn lots about each one. Nothing was too much trouble & they created a very special, unforgettable experience for all of our members.
Thank you from myself & all of the members & volunteers.
We will definitely be back in touch for future events.
(I will share some pictures via e-mail, please feel free to use them)


Winnie Wong Sept 12th 2019

My first experience of holding and learning about different owls. Had a lovely day. Was such a lovely experience, would definitely recommend 10/10. Will definitely go again Lisa was brilliant answering any questions we have regarding the owls.


Emma Selby  Sept 9th

What a wonderful experience! We went today to celebrate Isaac’s 11th birthday. He really enjoyed it and hasn’t stopped smiling!


Sophie Whey   Sept 5th 2019

I surprised my friend in July with an Owl experience, Lisa was fantastic and very accommodating with our booking. The birds are kept and cared for so well with Lisa knowning every single one of them by name, personality and habits. We had a brilliant day in the sunshine and would love to come back in the future. Thank you again 😊


Jo Coolage Sept 1st 2019

What can I say…. Wow!! I had a wonderful owl experience at Shropshire Falconry. It went too quickly because I was enjoying it so much, grinning from ear to ear the whole time. The owls are beautiful and all with their own personality, so obviously well looked after too. I enjoyed every minute but if I had to pick a highlight it would be flying Baggins the Barn Owl – he is amazing. I could have spent the whole day there. I may have to enquire about volunteering Thanks to Lisa for fitting me in at short notice too!


Rachel Birkall  Aug 24th 2019

An incredible relaxed, friendly, professional experience loved by both my son & myself.

We’ve been to a few Falconry Centres, all open to the public. I can’t promote highly enough the benefits of a centre that isn’t but by private appointment only.

Extremely impressed by the standards and welfare of all the birds we viewed and had the pleasure of working with.

The knowledge we gained and the clear passion that radiated from Lisa about all the birds was truly touching and only heightened what was already an amazing experience into a totally unforgettable 1 which had without doubt guaranteed us to join the centre at Hawkstone Follies for a hunting experience in the autumn.

Thank you again👌

Rachel & Miles😊


Gemma Plant Aug 11th 2019

Took part in the Jessops falconry photography experience day at Shropshire Falconry this weekend, and I’m sure to say I can’t recommend them enough. The team at Shropshire Falconry are very friendly and knowledgeable about all the birds! Had a brilliant day 😁


Mark Lloyd Aug 11th 2019

Spent the day there with Jessops Academy & had a brilliant time! Lisa & Steve are friendly, welcoming & VERY funny. I learnt a great deal, not only about photographing wildlife, but also about the birds themselves. 10/10 👍.


Sarah Lee Burton June 4th 2019

What an incredible place to visit!!  Lisa and Steve are two lovely people who clearly care immensely for their birds. I felt privileged to have been able to experience this first hand. Truly cannot recommend enough. Thank you!!!!!


Sarah Holt  May 27th 2019

We met Steve and Milo, the Harris hawk, at Hawkstone Follies. We had an absolutely amazing morning Steve is extremely knowledgeable and it was a real treat to walk in the woods chatting with him. Milo was very well behaved and kept us busy with plenty of flying and landing on our glove. A day to remember!


Vicky Ellis April 22nd

Went to the owl experience today with my husband and we thought it was absolutely fabulous! Lisa and Steve are very knowledgeable about the birds and you can tell how much they care for the birds. Lovely friendly place and would very much like to return for another experience that they offer.


Alan Spenser April 15th

Fantastic photography day with Jessops at Wem last weekend (8th April). Recommend it to everyone. Steve and Lisa so helpful and with a brilliant sense of humour. Not only did I get some great photos and learned a lot about taking bird photos, but also had a lot of fun. 5 star.


Sue Rowbottom May 21st

What an fantastic morning our photography group had on Saturday, the birds were beautiful, so well looked after and so patient. Steve and Lisa were so knowledgeable and we could see how passionate they are about their birds, the centre is immaculate and so well run. We can’t wait to go back again. Thank you Steve and Lisa for making our morning so specia


Alex Hall May 8th

Fantastic experience. Great hosts, knowledgeable and fun. Beautiful birds. Excellent to fly the owls. My children loved it and is great for rainy days as is in doors. Would recommend and visit again. Beautiful venue well maintained with pleasing decor. Hosts make the day with their cheery candid approach. Thank you great day


Emma Banks June 12th

Myself and a friend had an owl experience as a birthday treat today, it couldn’t of been better, the location is idyllic, not only are there birds of prey but there are chickens pottering about, sheep with their lambs and alpacas. The actual Owl experience was brilliant, Lisa explained everything well and not only gave us info on the breed of owl but into their individual personalities too, nothing was rushed, everyone got to have the owls fly to them and we even got to meet the baby steppe eagle afterwards too. We will definitely be back!


Cheryl Page-Padgett  June 17th

Absolutely the best birthday owl experience ever. Lovely knowledgeable staff. Fantastic well cared for and loved owls.


Noel Lambert 30th June

We had a wonderful afternoon when we went for the 90 min owl experience. It is a privilege to be around those beautiful creatures and we really appreciated the efforts they go to keep them comfortable.

Ps. The Llamas, lambs, spaniel, baby eagle, bantam, guinea fowl and the ferret were all lovely extras!


Chris Roberts 21st May

Went with a few other photographers from our local club in mid May and weren’t disappointed. Lisa and Steve were the perfect hosts throughout and their passion for and comprehensive knowledge of the subject shone through. Nothing was too much trouble for them. We were there for half a day and offered a good selection of birds to photograph in a variety of poses, often at our request. After tea and biscuits we moved onto photographing birds in flight – a real challenge should you choose to accept it. Some of our partners also came along as spectators which, although incurred a cost, was more than worth it when you consider the information given in the talks alone. All in all, a highly recommended first class experience which I for one am hoping to repeat very soon


What an excellent 90 minutes this was! We took advantage of the hot and sunny weather and spent some time outside with one of the barn owls and hearing about the centre and its owls, before heading into the indoor flying area. Here Lisa brought more owls of all sizes out for our small group to experience.

The centre is in a lovely remote rural location, fortunately the sat nav took us there without problems.

Would definitely recommend!

Martin P


A gem just up the road that we had no idea existed. Lovely warm welcome, great experience for two novice youngsters. Great information about the birds they handled. Why did I not know this existed?!! Totally recommend it – great treat for any bird lovers

Joan   Whixall

I bought an Owl experience for 2 from an online voucher company which made the experience cheaper, which as a Yorkshire man is always a plus. Finding the venue wasn’t the easiest but was still a fun adventure. On arrival we were greeted and shown the facilities. Once a group of people arrived we were given a talk by the owners of the falconry, we were told about the history of the place and the handlers themselves, as well as useful information on the birds we’d be experiencing. Once we were ready we went to the indoor flying area where we met and handled some beautiful owls, each member of the group taking it in turns to fly the owls from perch to glove. All the owls were beautifully cared for and seemed happy in their surroundings. With each new bird we were given information specific to that breed/lineage. Despite having had lot of bird/owl experiences before we still learned some new information here and got to meet some owls which we hadn’t previously seen. It was a great day out and I’d recommend a visit to anyone. The hosts/owners/handlers were lovely and the venue was fully equipped for both customer and the birds that lived here.

Martin Tunstall

Spent a fantastic morning on the Owl experience. Lisa was both knowledgeable and engaging. It was dream come true for me to be able to handle and fly the beautiful owls and I am looking forward to going back to fly other birds of prey. I highly recommend a visit to Shropshire Falconry Centre


Rita Roberts   6th July

Absolutely brilliant!! Lisa came with 5 beautiful owls to my daughters 6th birthday party. The children loved handling them as did the adults, with the added bonus of a few games. Such wonderful birds and a very informative demonstration. Highly recommended. Thank you.

Eve Wagner.  21st June

Thank you both very much for making this afternoon so special for Matthew! He tells me that it’s the highlight of his trip and he’s looking forward to coming back to see you all again on his next visit to the U.K. Definitely recommended from the 2 of us!!

Adam Johnson. 2nd june


Visited today for a group owl experience. Had a fantastic experience and the falconers, Lisa and Stephen, were very approachable and made the experience fun. It is very clear that they are very experienced falconers and are so passionate about what they do it’s infectious.

I have done a few of these sessions with other groups but aside from the Barn Owl I flew all new Owls (and can’t decide whether or not the Long Eared Owl or the Boobook Owl is my new favourite Owl). I will definatley be going back for an individual experience Owl experience, hawk walk or even something else and am very interested in volunteering with them; if they will have me.

I cannot recommend them enough and would highly recommend a visit. You will not go away disappointed.

Aled Meirion.


Went to the Owl Experience today which was fantastic! Steve and Lisa welcomed the group and ran us through an intro to inform us more about the extensive work they do (takes about 10 mins) and then they introduced us to the Owls which is a great experience and would highly recommend.

By attending the Owl Experience you get the opportunity to gain knowledge about the birds and hold them too.
Steve and Lisa have vast Falconry experience and knowledge and put together a brilliant experience. Definitely not to be missed!

Paul Thorney.


Went on the Falconer for a Day experience last week and thoroughly enjoyed the whole day. From feeding the young owls and hawks, witnessing a Barn Owl coming out of the egg to the flying and handling of a variety of owls and birds of prey. The whole day taught me a lot and gave me a lot of unique experiences with some amazing birds. A big thanks to Steve who did a great job of making the day really memorable. I hope Lucky is doing well and would be great to see you again soon. All the best. Mark Hudson
Bought the voucher for an Owl experience for my daughter…lisa and Steve were lovely so were the owls… Nice few hours out at this hidden gem..worth a visit
Tina Crewe
A late Christmas present from my mum.. as she knows my love for owls.. we travelled down not knowing what to expect.But we came across Steve cracking jokes the moment we arrived making us feel very welcome,we arrived and had a introduction to what was going to happen and had the opportunity to meet some gorgeous owls..I was a bit wary about holding them but Lisa made me feel very safe and reassured me they wouldn’t eat me..had a lovely time and had some pictures..definitely recommend to take a trip down, a very clean place
Hayleigh Akansas Trip Advisor
A small group of us spent the afternoon photographing the owls and hawks in a variety of static and flying situations. Steve & Lisa were very good at posing the birds and making suggestions for good shots. Nothing was too much trouble and they were very patient and accommodating with us. As a result I think we all got some good shots that we wouldn’t have managed without their help. Thoroughly recommended and I will be going again (Hopefully in the sunshine!)
Trip Advisor
I booked an ‘owl experience ‘ for my son’s 11th birthday. Lisa and Steve were so welcoming and instantly put him at ease. He fed babies, flew and walked a variety of different owls and learnt so much. He really didn’t want to leave. He was chuffed with his gift from Lisa and Steve, a pic of his favourite owl and a huge owl balloon. Really thoughtful. He will be back as a young volunteer in the summer holidays. One happy birthday boy. Thank you.
Sara O’Hara   31st May
Shropshire falconry is run by two very dedicated professionals, Steve and Lisa. Their hard work makes sure any experience you have with them is outstanding
Jamie Gill Mundy
I came here for an owl experience that I was given as a Mother’s Day present. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit. The staff are so welcoming, friendly and knowledgable and clearly had a passion for falconry. I would highly recommend a visit here to anyone with a keen interest in birds of prey

We booked an Owl Experience for some family members to celebrate my Dad’s 70th Birthday.
We had a range of ages within the party
We could not have been more impressed with our visit
Steve and Lisa are clearly passionate about their birds and this came through in everything they did
The birds were amazing. Steve and Lisa were knowledgeable and friendly.
I would thoroughly recommend a visit and we will be visiting again
Thanks for a wonderful day

Lloraine Stoke on Trent 2/5/17


I went with a Jessops group for a days photography experience (they are not open to casual visitors, you need to be part of a pre-booked group). It was excellent for getting close to a wide range of captive bred birds, they have a great range of different locations for photographing the birds, and we were encouraged, with most birds, to get closer than we thought possible. Great for photographers and people interested in wildlife as they were full of knowledge about raptors in general. It was brilliant for close up photos, and testing for getting good flying shots! Its not a zoo, more a living collection for enthusiasts and, as soon as I left I could not wait to get on the phone to tell people what a great day I had.

John B  29/4/17


Had a lovely up close experience with 4 amazing owls. Lisa has an obvious enthusiasm and love for what she does as well,as a lot of knowledge. Not to be confused with Battlefield falconary like I did lol 🙂

Dinah 20/3/17


Just attended an owl experience and it was fantastic. Knowledgeable hosts and well looked after owls. Amazing to be able to handle the owls up close. Definitely worth a visit

Susan Donald 19/3/17


Went to the Owl experience today and it was brilliant. Lisa and Steve were great, informative and good fun. The birds were beautiful up close as they flew onto your glove. We will be going again

Mark Roberts 19/3/17


Had a lovely time this morning at the falconry centre. I bought the owl experience for my fiancée for Christmas and she loved seeing all the different owls and finding out more information about then. Also loved how well kept the birds were and how friendly staff were. Would recommend to anyone.

Jon Haynes 19/3/17


Booked an owl experience for 3 generations of our family. Had an absolutely brilliant time. Lisa and Steve were fantastic…knowledgeable, friendly, fun .

Took my Dad and his partner with my Granddaughter to the Owl experience today. All had a throughly entertaining time. We learnt a lot about the owls and how to maintain their welfare. Only improvement I would suggest is to Steve’s repertoire of owl jokes�

Linda Dodd 3/3/17


Purchased the owl experience for my daughter for her birthday. Brilliant day, great fun had by all in the group, think we were a lively group though lol. Lisa and Steve brilliant too and even had jokes thrown in too. Wish I had gotten a picture of Christopher though when he had a scratch and looked like he had a fright when his feathers were all over the place. Will be booking again for another experience

Michelle Stud 20/3/17



Dear Steve and Lisa

What a wonderful morning we had at your centre last Saturday morning. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you for your warm welcome, also for the interesting and informative session with the owls. Your passion and commitment to the task is clear. I hope this important work continues to be successful, and that you enjoy it as much as your visitors.

Warwick  12/4/17


Just wanted to thank you both for a great morning yesterday. It was lovely to meet you both and all the Owls. We really enjoyed every minute handling and flying the owls and it was lovely to see the wonderful condition of all your birds. Particularly loved little Christopher white faced and the little brown scops owl. We both thought the Barn owls flying together was so spectacular. Keep up the good work and thank you both again. – Liz & Laurence Wigmore 23/2/2017


This was an amazing experience. The Owls were really looked after and you could see just how much the owners loved them and what they do. We got to handle and fly around 7 owls

Bill Nantwich 22/2/2017


From Groupon – A fabulous experience with a variety of owls. Lisa our host was very knowledgeable and there were plenty of laughs too. Highly recommend for all ages. 23 February, 2017


The whole experience was amazing! Lots of information given, a lovely place to visit. Lisa is very informative and will answer as many questions as you are able to think of. A fantastic experience and would definitely go again. We even had the added touch of receiving a balloon for valentines, thank you!

Sophie Simpson  12th Feb 2017


Excellent day out. The information I received on how to treat owls correctly is invaluable. I am now far more aware of Owl welfare. Thanks

Mike Jennings 15th Feb 2017


We spent a really enjoyable morning at the Owl Experience. The birds are stunning and obviously so well looked after. Lots of interesting information and I thought the awareness raising of the welfare of birds of prey in general was valuable. Sure we will be making a return trip!


Andrea O’Malley  8th Feb 2017


Brilliant owl experience today, will definitely be coming back in the future � friendly and informative staff, that truly love the birds, and beautiful, friendly owls. Great day out.

Louse Llowarch-Taylor Feb 2017



I took my daughter here today as she absolutely loves owls. We had the Owl experience and it was fantastic. Smiles all around. We were treated like family and told so much about the owls and the work that goes into looking after them. Thank you ever so much

Joanne Hardy Jan 2017



We had a really wonderful experience, it was well organised, we were welcomed with a hot drink and a mince pie. The birds were beautiful and we had plenty of time with them, it wasn’t just one quick fly and land then move on, they took their time. We had plenty of interesting information about the birds and the people running it. Thoroughly enjoyed it

Michelle Duggins Dec 2016



Me and my friend have just come back from an owl experience wow what can I say other than it was the best experience ever and the staff were fantastic and so passionate about all the animals but also Steve and Lisa made sure we all had a great time and made us feel so welcomed.. Thank you so much best afternoon ever

Cara Davies December 2016



Great day and a warm welcome. Welfare of the birds is their number one priority!

Harry Barfield Feb 2nd 2017


My sister bought for me an owl experience for Christmas which we attended today and it was absolutely wonderful. There were some very good touches, with there being a kitchen so you can get a brew before meeting the most beautiful creatures. I was wearing a yellow coat, which put off one of the owls (I think he was worried I was danger), but Lisa and Steve soon coaxed him around and he was flying back and forth with such happiness it melts ya heart. Will definitely be back – spread the word to your friends and please make a visit, you won’t regret it!!!

Tracy W (trip advisor review)

Jan 2017


Had a lovely morning with Lisa and Steve. We got to meet and handle a great selection of owls and our hosts were a mine of knowledge and kept us all informed and entertained as we took our turns. My personal favourite was probably Scooby the white faced owl who can’t wait to fly to you for a morsel but then just sits in your arm until you cave and walk him back to the perch. They were all clearly much loved and happy to take part. I would highly recommend


January 2017


A really great afternoon out, Lisa and Steve were very welcoming. The whole setup has obviously been properly thought out, and the personal touches such as a kitchen with hot drinks and snacks only added to an experience I’d recommend to anyone. These incredibly well looked after, friendly and beautiful birds really are a sight to see, up close and personal. Thank you for a really great day. We’ll be back soon!

Lovely atmosphere and venue, and the birds are very well looked after and clearly loved. Daughter and friend really enjoyed getting so close and flying the owls. Excellent value for a taster morning, highly recommended



A most enjoyable afternoon and it was good to see the Owls in flight and flying on to one,s gloved hand. The owners are passionate about owls and this is reflected in their presentation


Fantastic experience – up close with the owls & plenty of goes at flying them. Steve & Lisa are hugely knowledgable & clearly passionate about what they do. The session felt relaxed, personal & filled with humour too. Absolutely recommend this!!



Gift for my parents and they phoned as soon as finished to say thank you and how much they enjoyed it especially the grey owl! Would go again and recommend to anyone.


Excellent value for money. Small group of 8 people so we all got plenty of time with the owls – about 6 different owls. Lisa & Steve who run Shropshire Falconry are very knowledgeable and passionate about the birds. Highly Recommended.


I lost my car keys prior to setting off for the event whilst there was not much that could be done Shropshire Falconry were very understanding even offered a later that day session but my daughter has something planned. Lisa rang the next day and we have re-booked.


Wrap up warm in winter as a little chilly when flying the birds, but it is indoors so not wet. Take your camera, the birds are very well looked after and pose for you!


Lovely, friendly hosts and very informative about the owls, which were beautiful!


An asolutely enjoyable few hours. Well worth a visit. We were made to feel very welcome and the instruction was good . We fell of course fell in love with the birds. What amazing characters they were..


We had an absolutely amazing owl experience with Shropshire Falconry. The birds are obviously incredibly well looked after and loved. The staff are so knowledgable and clearly enjoy sharing their passion with you. Small groups, loads of time with the birds, I cannot recommend Shropshire Falconry enough!



My daughters had an amazing time The staff were really nice and friendly which made the experience much more enjoyable. If you know someone that likes owls this is well worth it. Thank you


Absolutely fabulous! Indoor activity but cold so wrap up well.  The owners are amazing. Funny and friendly. The venue is very clean and the birds are well cared for (loved/indulged ) The birds welfare are priority. I learned a lot The time went quickly I would definitely recommend this experience


Absolutely first class day with our son who is 12 years old. He loved the whole day and we were all looked after really well by Lisa and Steve (shame about the jokes Steve). Can’t recommend Shopshire Falconry enough if you want to experience these beautiful birds. Thanks again

Mark Wellings


My husband and I have just come back from the winter owl experience today. What an amazing time we had. Loved it, Lisa had so much knowledge and the owls were clearly all so well looked after and happy and enjoyed showing off their talents. A truly amazing experience we will be returning to do the Hunting day

Natalie Mcloud



Me and my friend have just come back from an owl experience wow what can I say other than it was the best experience ever and the staff were fantastic and so passionate about all the animals but also Steve and Lisa made sure we all had a great time and made us feel so welcomed..

I had a wonderful time here today, it was more than I expected, not only was it up close and personal with a beautiful collection of owls, the people who run Shropshire falconry were very professional and welcoming happy to answer any questions and had abundance of knowledge about the birds. I would recommend to any animal lover and shall definitely be returning soon as well as purchasing vouchers for family Christmas gifts!! Thank you Shropshire falconry

Had a wonderful time at my Owl Experience with Shropshire Falconry today. Cant recommend these guys highly enough. They are passionate about their birds & knowledgeable about their craft. The birds are stunning, whatever their size. Please go if you get the chance.

Absolutely brilliant day at the owl experience! I was a spectator and watch my parents enjoy the lovely experience of having owl fly to them. I learnt a lot about owls myself and I highly reccomend these guys! 10/10 from me

‘ Just wanted to say thank you for a fabulous time yesterday. What a great way to spend a Sunday morning.It was wonderful to see the birds so close up and behaving as they would in the wild. You should be proud of what you have achieved. The set up was brilliant and we both thought that the relaxed friendly manner you offered added to what was already a wonderful experience.
We will have no problem recommending you to family and friends.Thank you once again.

My wife got me an early Christmas present from groupon for a Christmas owl experience. I have an unusual fear of birds as I’m terrified of everything other than birds of prey, I’m fascinated by them and have been up close and personal to quite a few so I was really looking forward to my visit. The weather yesterday wasn’t brilliant but thankfully Shropshire Falconry have a fantastic indoor flying facility. We were greeted on arrival by Lisa and shortly after by Steve and his daughter Sophie. My wife is disabled and uses a mobility scooter and they couldn’t of been more helpful in getting her safely inside and comfortable. They had obviously gone to a great deal of trouble to ensure that each group that goes to one of these experiences has the best possible time and they are brilliant people that are incredibly passionate about their birds and their business. I’m not going to say what happens during the experience because I don’t want to spoil it for anyone that may read this before they go but needless to say I thought it was amazing, I learn’t a great deal and despite Steve’s best efforts the owls were definitely the stars of the show. So Lisa for me your 5 stars are still very much intact

Had a great time 😊 thank you Lisa and Steve .loved every minute of it thank you x

Just wanted to say a HUGE Thank you for our birds of prey experience today! It was a really great surprise, as I had no idea where they were taking me…much better than the chickens I thought I was going to see haha!
It was a wonderful day, and you guys and all the animals are amazing!! My ultimate photo from the day has to be the cheeky selfie I snappe with little Tikka haha ❤️ Will definitely be recommending you to all my friends!

Had a wonderful time yesterday with gorgeous owls! Got some lovely photos.. and thank you to the gentleman who took the ones with an owl on my arm!! Lol 👍🏻 Fabulous morning! Thanks guys.



Excellent value. A delightful morning with experience of getting close up and “handling” a variety of owls (from a small Indian Scops to the larger Great Grey in our case, although no doubt these will vary). The couple who run the place are really friendly and knowledgeable and ensured all present had a chance to fly and hold each of the owls. It was in a large barn so would be suitable for all weathers. The venue is not open to the public, so booking is essential. Spectators get the same close proximity except that they don’t get to actually hold the birds. Other experiences with falcons are also available.

Wonderful experience. Will definitely return for another experience, the keepers were obviously very experienced with the owls welfare their number one priority.
Loved being so close to the owls and equally felt at ease despite the size of some of the larger owls. My wife was nervous about the experience but as soon as she saw the smallest owl she fell in love and was completely relaxed. I would strongly recommend this experience for anyone who loves getting up close and personal with owls

Thank you so much for a wonderful afternoon. My Mother-in-law bought this as part of my birthday present as it was one of the 50 things I wanted to do in the year leading up to my fiftieth. It was amazing. Can’t wait to come back
