Happy birds, thrilled visitors, and passionate hosts - that's what you'll experience at the falconry centre in Shrewsbury! This amazing place offers customized experiences for visitors and focuses on providing hands-on interactions with the birds of prey. As the centre is never open to the public, you can be assured that your experience will be unique.
In addition to the typical shows, school visits, and weddings in Shrewsbury, the falconers also engage in various everyday tasks such as breeding, rearing, caring for, and training the resident raptors. If you're interested in learning more about these tasks and other daily duties of a falconer and enjoy lots of flying, the full-day course is highly recommended.
For those who prefer a leisurely stroll through the countryside, the Hawk Walk is a fantastic option. With about 600 acres of Shrewsbury countryside to explore, you'll have plenty of space to enjoy the gregarious Hawk's company. As you walk, the Hawk may even fly down to your gloved hand, making the experience even more unforgettable.
The Owl experiences, particularly with gorgeous and photogenic owls like Scoobie and Freckle, are a hit with younger falconers and adults alike. During these sessions, you'll get ample time to take photos and even fly some owls, with both indoor and outdoor arenas available at the centre.
The Hawk Walk experience allows you to walk through a 600-acre wooded parkland while looking after and flying your own Harris Hawk, flying them to the glove!
