York Bird of Prey Centre is fantastic for nature lovers as you have the chance to get really close to these stunning birds, most of which have been hand reared and are safe to handle. The birds are carefully chosen to be examples whom enjoy your attention so there are no distressed birds who are tired of company. So fun for everyone!
The Centre has a daily programme of events, which begins with bird handling, followed by an interesting talk about medieval history and how it relates to birds of prey. Then there is a flying demonstration, where participation is encouraged, so this is a great chance for a close up and maybe a photo opportunity, say Cheese!
You also get a chance to see Kookaburras being fed before another handling opportunity, this time with eagles, followed by another flying demonstration.
If you want a more personal experience, they offer Hawk Walks, Owl Experiences and Falconry Courses. Whatever you choose, you can be safe in the knowledge that you will always be under the supervision of a trained Falconer at all times. So loads of options for all levels of visit.
