National Centre for Birds of Prey
The National Centre for Birds of Prey is the largest collection of these amazing birds in the north of England. A huge collection of owls, eagles, falcons, hawks, vultures and more are housed in spacious aviaries on our 12 acre site.
We fly a team of trained birds for our visitors every single day. We even have an indoor area for use on wet days. Bring your camera!
Admission to the centre includes admission into the surrounding 300 acres of parkland with a number of marked trails to follow.
Picnic tables are provided and the parking is free.
