Details

During your visit you will see a large collection of exotic and spectacular birds of prey. There will be three flying demonstrations every day and very often, there will be opportunities to see the birds being trained on the flying field.

Group visits from schools and other organisations are welcome and pre booked parties of 15 or more individuals may be given a guided tour of the centre by prior arrangement.

The Fountain Tearoom offers wonderful home cooked food with a range of daily specials on the blackboard. There is both indoor and outdoor seating available with seating in the flying ground and picnic tables are situated in the Hawk Walk and the flying ground.

There are flying demonstrations every day – whatever the weather. We have 3 flying areas – and one of them is inside if the weather is really bad.
