Talon Falconry will give you a truly gripping experience that is fun for all the family.
This is a great chance to see how these amazing birds are handled and trained, plus learn interesting facts about their lives. You will get to see them in action when you watch the dramatic flying demonstrations and if you are brave enough, you can pull on a gauntlet and allow one of the trained raptors to land on your arm!
The Ssssssnake Pit contains a growing number of reptiles and snakes from around the world. You may have the chance to handle one of these too.
There are several Rheas running around in their enclosure, plus inquisitive ferrets and fluffy rabbits to meet too.
Other places you may want to check out are the Wild Birds area with lots of feeders and bird tables, and the bird boxes with webcams so you can see what's happening inside.
If you want a more personal encounter, there are Owl and Hawk Experiences, plus full and half day Falconry courses.
