Bird Flying Experiences

Your Chance to Fly and Handle Birds of Prey and Owls!

We offer a variety of Bird of Prey Handling Experience sessions here at The Falconry Centre. Participants will experience the thrill of handling and flying a wide variety of birds of prey. Experiences are provided to small groups of individuals; group sizes are limited to ensure maximum enjoyment for the Participants. Exclusive Experiences are also available should you wish to book for a private group.

All gift vouchers are valid for 12 months, so the recipient has plenty of time to book in their Experience.

We can also accept payments for vouchers over the phone, or you can come to our Visitor Centre to purchase a voucher over the counter.
