All group visits must be booked in advance, so please telephone us on 01562 700014 during our opening hours to discuss available dates. Group bookings are only available on weekdays during term time, not school holidays, weekends or Bank Holidays. We are an entirely outdoor venue. We do not have toilets or full handwashing facilities on our site; these are located in the adjacent Webb’s Garden Centre building.
School Groups – Morning Only
As well as us visiting schools with a team of birds, we offer group visits here at the Falconry Centre. Our morning group visit consists of a short welcome/introduction, before children are given up to half an hour to look around the aviaries under the supervision of their teachers.
We will then provide an hour-long flying demonstration featuring a wide selection of birds of prey and owls, after which your group will depart. Your start/arrival time may vary between 10:00 to 11:00am and your visit will then last for up to 90 minutes.
The cost for this is £150 for up to 50 children, any additional children will be charged at £3.00 each up to a maximum of 75 children. Teachers are free of charge up to a maximum of 1 teacher for every 6 children.
On weekdays during term times between April to September, we offer private displays for larger groups wanting to experience the thrill of seeing a selection of birds of prey flying in our new 7 acre field. Your group will have 30 minutes to look around our visitor centre to see the range of birds housed here, before taking your seats in the field for a private flying display lasting approximately 40 minutes, followed by a 20 minute question and answer session with one of our falconers. The flying display will feature a selection of birds including owls, hawks, eagles and falcons. Start times for arrival at the visitor centre will be either 11am, 2pm or 4pm subject to availability.
A private display costs £150 for up to 30 people; additional guests will be charged at £4.50 per person, up to a maximum of 75 people. Private displays must be booked and paid for in advance in a single transaction. To book a Private Display, please telephone us on 01562 700014 to discuss available dates.
We are able to open the centre for private groups in the evening for a one hour visit at 5pm. The group can consist of adults, children or a mix and can be of any size group; we have seating available for up to 50 people. You will have the chance to walk around the centre for 15 minutes, followed by a 45-minute flying display. During the flying display we will fly various birds such as eagles, hawks, falcons and owls. The birds will be flown very close to people and an informative commentary will be given about each bird. We have had groups such as Cubs, Brownies, WI, Rotary Club and even birthday parties. Pre-booking is essential. A One Hour Evening visit costs £150 and is only available Monday to Saturday, from May to August.
