Bird of Prey Experience (Junior/Adult)

There’s nothing more magnificent than getting close to a Bird of Prey.


This is your chance to work with and fly these majestic creatures. This fabulous bird of prey experience lasts 3 hours and is available to budding young raptor enthusiasts aged 8 to 13 years and older fans of our birds of prey aged 14 years and over.

You will have the opportunity to handle and fly some fantastic birds such as hawks and owls. You will also get the chance to learn more about our charismatic vultures.

Participants will receive an experience T-shirt, colour photo and a framed certificate to commemorate their time with us.

The programme of activities is dependent on the capability of the participants; however, where it is possible, reasonable adjustments will be made to try to ensure that all of our experiences are open to all. Please be aware that pregnant women will be unable to take part in any pre-booked experience.

Please note that for our adult bird of prey experiences guests are unable to accompany the participant. However, they are more than welcome to watch them take an active role in the public flying display. Junior bird of prey experiences can allow one adult guest per participating child.
