Falconry UK - Thirsk Birds of Prey Centre

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.

New For 2017 Half Day Eagle Experience

Your day starts at 10.30 when you will be met by our team of handlers and taken onto the eagle lawn to meet the stars of your experience

 Throughout the experience, emphasis is "hands on" and you will be given the chance to handle and fly different Eagles. 

 You will be shown different techniques for handling birds of prey safely which will include a brief insight to how we train a bird of prey.

Your experience concludes with you flying two of our larger eagles
