We are re-opening on 12th April 2021. We will be open every day 11am until 5pm with last entry at 4pm.
Visitor numbers will be limited to approximately 30 (under 5's will not be counted towards this total), so please limit your visit to 90 minutes when we are busy. No pre-booking is required, we operate on a first come, first served basis. As people leave us, we can allow more people in.
In accordance with government guidelines there are no flying displays, however we will be exercising birds intermittently throughout the afternoon from 12 noon onwards. Hopefully our normal flying displays will resume from 17th May.
We are also taking bookings for our Bird Handling Experiences; please contact us to discuss available dates.
If you have an outstanding voucher for a Bird Handling Experience, this has already been extended to the end of June 2022. Any new vouchers purchased are also valid until June 2022.
Our Visitor Centre is open all year, and with birds flying every day from 1pm, it makes a great afternoon out!
The Falconry Centre was established in 1983 and currently houses over 80 birds of prey including various species of Eagles, Vultures, Buzzards, Owls, Kestrels, Falcons and Hawks from around the world.
There are over 30 species including the Snowy Owl, Asian Brown Wood Owl, American Kestrel, Saker Falcon, Golden Eagle, Bald Eagle, Griffon Vulture and Raven to name a few.
We are also a rehabilitation centre for injured wild birds of prey - click here for details.
The Visitor Centre
The Visitor Centre exists in a peaceful and secluded site which is surrounded by beautiful mature trees, nestled beside Webb's (of Hagley) Garden Centre. Access to the Falconry Centre is via the Garden Centre main entrance and there is ample parking available in Webb's car park.
As well as adding many more birds, there have been many improvements to the centre in recent years. We have rebuilt all of the aviaries to make them larger. There are concrete pathways throughout the Visitor Centre making it fully accessible for pushchairs and wheelchairs, and a large seating area adjacent to the flying arena with picnic benches and other seating. The centre features landscaped gardens and an established wildlife and fish pond. We are constantly maintaining and developing new features to enhance your visit to our centre.
Please note: The Falconry Centre, Hagley holds a current Zoo Licence and has full public liability insurance.
