Our Aims and Objectives;


Conservation of Birds of Prey through public education, captive breeding,

treatment and rehabilitation of wild injured birds of prey.




We are a small zoo with a big heart, offering unforgettable up close encounters and spectacular shows. Our main visitors centre is open to the public for limited dates each year, please see our 'Open Days' section for more details.  We run Experience Days, Outreach visits and Educational sessions all year round where you can get up close to our Birds of Prey and other animals.  Please see our 'Experience Days' and 'Educational Sessions & Events' sections for more details on the different experiences and bookings we offer.


Education is on going to all visitors.  The Centre undertakes more in depth education to specific groups and parties, from schools to universities and offers off-site lectures and teaching. 


The Centre continues its captive breeding aims; to research species; breed from species not previously understood; maintain the collection and provide birds for demonstrations, both in the U.K and further afield.


We are a fully licensed zoo and we are fully insured.  We are passionate about educating people about birds of prey and the challenges they face in the wild.  We strongly believe children are the future, and a child who grows up loving nature and wanting to save it, will be an adult that takes action.



Our Experience Days operate all year round!


Experiences can booked by emailing 


All of our experiences are fun, educational and very hands on.

From Owl Experiences and Falconry Days to Bird of Prey

Encounters and Meet the Animals Experiences, we have something for everyone to enjoy!

Licensing Update:


As of 1st Arpil 2019, all Animal Activities must be licensed which includes animal encounters, village fetes and fairs, bird of prey displays, educational talks for schools and childrens groups, animal therapy visits to hospitals and care homes, childrens parties, etc. 

If there is an animal involved in anyway, then the company requires this license.  This is to ensure higher welfare standards for the animals being used and greater public safety.

We are also fully insured.


If booking a company that has animals, please ensure they are licensed as it is now a legal requirement.  Anyone operating without this license will be doing so illegally and their Public Libility Insurance will aslo be void.
