Set in 22 acres of woodland and wildflower meadow, there are over 150 birds of prey on view, from the tiny Pygmy Owl to the impressive Steller's Sea Eagles! Many of these birds are involved in the spectacular daily flying demonstrations, whilst others are part of important breeding or environmental enrichment projects. Every visitor can hold a British bird of prey and there are extra activities during weekends and school holidays for the younger visitors. « less

We went thinking we'd spend a few hours, and ended up staying all day. The flying displays are simply incredible - really one not to be missed.

Our day started with the "Vulture Restaurant" and was followed by several different flying displays throughout the day. Having 20 vultures and black kites flying over your head is an experience not to miss. It was fascinating to discover that the owls fly silently... More

We had an excellent day overall, the displays were excellent and informative, providing a real insight into the fantastic work that the trust does and allowing you to get close to the various Birds of Prey...

I cannot recommend this highly enough, we got to fly several birds including a vulture, owl and bald eagle. They let us visit the hospital and feed the baby birds, the trip included entry to the park all day. Staff were very knowledgable and helpful, nice cafe to grab a drink/bite to eat as well. Will be coming back!

Your visit will also help the conversation of birds of prey especially vultures from around the world. Also you will help them take care... More
