What's included

  • Set in 42 acres of woodland, the 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.
  • The experience starts with 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 centre.
  • A trained falconer will provide an in-depth history of falconry before you get treated to a display of one of the birds in flight.
  • This deal is available seven days a week until 31 October

It was so engaging, walking with the birds and getting to know them. Getting up close with such beautiful creatures was amazing.

Being able to interact with the birds was brilliant, you felt so much more involved and respectful of them, than when staring at them on their posts.

The atmosphere and how rustic the centre was. The staff were friendly and the owner an interesting and passionate man regarding the work he has done so far, rescuing birds and other animals.

The whole experience was well run, different to others I've been on in that you get to sit with either an Owl or Falcon for the duration of the experience, the guides were knowledgable about the birds each of us had on our gloves and the session was finished off with a flying display all in all two hours well spent.

The knowledge that Chris shared about the birds and the time we had with the owl. It was excellent and I would recommend the visit.

Staff were all super. The Centre is rustic but when you speak to Chris, you understand his ethos and his passion and focus for the welfare of the birds and leopards.
