What's included

  • Set in 42 acres of woodland, Rutland Falconry & Owl Centre is home to more than 130 birds of prey including owls, hawks, falcons, eagles and vultures. The centre also shares its space with Rutland Wildlife Sanctuary, home to some of the world's rarest cats, Amur leopards.
  • To start off, you are given the chance to sit with your bird for a while during a short talk on your chosen species. Then you will receive a demonstration on how to carry the bird on your fist, and once you are comfortable with it, you will walk with the bird on your fist around the 42-acre centre.
  • A trained falconer will provide an in-depth history of falconry before you get treated to a display of one of the beautiful birds in flight.
  • This deal is available seven days a week, until 10 March, 2013.

the suroundings were brillant and to be able to hold an owl for over an hour was wonderful. the whole experience was so good we will be returning

dont be put off by the look of the place when you first arrive or the laid back approach. it is the best experience of its kind that i have ever done, a real hidden gem

We love this place it is such a pleasure to take owls or hawks for a walk through the lovely woods there. The staff love talking about all the birds and it's a wonderful way to spend 2 hours

Watching my husband talking to a large owl on his arm and taking it for a walk!

Very knowledgeable staff who wanted their visitors to understand the birds and get the most out of their visit.

Guided walk in woodland with a Harris Hawk

25 September 2014 Vivien United Kingdom

This was a really enjoyable experience where we were able to select the bird we'd like - myself an owl and my husband a hawk - and walk with them through woods to a flying area. We experienced both a hawk and an owl flying to us and this was repeated several times, so excellent value for the money we paid.

This was a last minute decision so we booked at the last minute and were lucky to get places.
