Falconry UK

Enjoy the thrills and excitement of falconry at the Birds of Prey and Conservation Centre, with over 70 birds and 30 species.

Eagles, falcons, hawks, kites, vultures and owls will swoop and dive around you as you sit in a beautiful English garden. Our skilled handlers will explain why the birds hunt and fly as they do, where they come from in the wild and how they are trained.

Discover at first hand what makes these birds masters of the skies. Following each breathtaking display you too may hold our birds of prey for The Ultimate Hands on Experience.

VIP Eagle Experience

A very limited number of places are available to attend and experience the thrill and excitement of flying a good selection of our eagle collection. The experience will start at 11.00am and run for approximately 3 hours. This experience is strictly for over 18 year olds and you must be fit and able to hold up to 10lbs (5 bags of sugar) in weight on your left arm.

The centre will be closed to the general public so our team of falconers will be on hand throughout the experience to ensure you safely enjoy your experience.
The day will start with a meet and great over coffee and a briefing setting out the format for the experience, we will then venture out on to the eagle lawn and meet the stars of the day. We then commence the first flying and handling session. At a convenient point we will break off for hot soup and hot drinks, once refreshed we will continue with the second session. During both sessions there will be ample photo opportunities for you to take photos of these fantastic eagles.
