Handling experiences

Our Handling Experiences are at the core of what we do.
We offer a range of Bird of Prey Experiences at our Centre, which provides participants with a real ‘Hands On’ activity, achieved through the handling and flying of our birds, during which time you will become well equated with the bird(s) you are flying and learn in-depth about their species and the vital role they play in our world.

We pride ourselves in conducting our Bird of Prey Experiences in a manner that both bird & participant are happy, satisfied & at ease. Our falconers are highly trained in catering the Handling Experiences we offer to your needs, whether this be age or ability, this can be discussed in confidence during booking.  The current handling experiences run through the 1st of April until October, included in every handling experience is a full day park entry, so you can explore the rest of the park after you have finished.

Owl Experience

If you’re more in tune with the slower more fluffier members of the Bird of Prey family, then this experience is for you. 

Gain private access to our Flying Arena, allowing you to have one on one, hands on experience with two of our stunning owls. These silent but fluffy hunters are best experienced up close and personal. The Owls will glide towards you and perch upon your glove, making for the perfect picture opportunity.  You will leave the experience with a greater appreciation and understanding of these fascinating Birds of Prey.
