Owl and Falconry Centre
Isle of Wight
Telephone: 01983 852484
Owl and Falconry Centre is set in the grounds of the Appuldurcombe estate, which also contains one of the grandest houses on the Isle of Wight!
You will see plenty of stunning birds of prey as you take a leisurely walk around the centre and see some beautiful species in their aviaries or the weathering lawn.
Birds include Vultures, Falcons, Owls, Eagles, Kites, Hawks and more, from all around the world!
Flying displays are held several times a day (10.45am, 12pm and 2pm) and last about 45 minutes. They feature a large variety of interesting birds of prey from around the world, which you can learn all about from the fascinating commentary that accompanies the display. They vary each day and continue whatever the weather, as there is also a purpose built indoor flight barn for wet days.
You can really make a day of it and include a visit to Appuldurcombe House and Museum. There is an outdoor children’s play area, and an indoor children’s soft play area (Little Owls), which also has rabbits, goats, guinea pigs and chickens! With a large picnic area and plenty of free parking, what more could you ask for to make a brilliant family day out?!

It may be worth checking out Owl and Falconry Centre's website to see if there are any special events or seasonal fun things to do that may be going on during the day.
We do strongly suggest you contact Owl and Falconry Centre before you set off on your family day out, just to make sure they are open and to confirm admission prices, as there is nothing worse than disappointed kids in the back of your car after a long journey.
