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.

Fun day out for all the family

The whole family can get up close and personal with our amazing collection of birds of prey, as eagles sore overhead, owls swoop past and prepare to duck and dive as our vultures fly by!  

We start our flying displays at 11.30, 1:30 and 3:30 and fly different birds in each display followed by a handling session, so that you can get even closer to these fantastic birds (at no extra cost!) - don't forget to bring your camera!


Gift ideas with a difference

Why not spoil that special person with a day to remember and treat them to one of our Experience days?. Falconry UK's "introduction to falconry experience" offers a unique insight into the art of falconry. Throughout the experience, the emphasis is "hands on" and you will be given the chance to handle many different species of raptors. The birds used on the experience days are owls, hawks, buzzards and eagles.

The day begins with a tour of the centre where you will be introduced to the birds that you will be encountering on the experience. You will be shown different techniques for handling birds of prey safely which will be followed by a glimpse into the step-by-step guide to training a bird of prey. Why not buy one for yourself or someone you know today?
Gift vouchers are normally dispatched within 24hrs from receiving information request.
