Home to an impressive collection of over 250 birds, the International Centre for Birds of Prey offers a rare opportunity to get up close to some of the world’s most spectacular birds, while supporting the charity’s breeding and rehabilitation efforts. As well as marveling at the mighty eagles, raptors and falcons, and taking a peek at the owls, visitors can coo over the baby birds (spring season only), enjoy the scenic gardens and woodland walks, and discover plenty of fascinating facts about birds of prey.
The highlight of every visit is the chance to watch the magnificent creatures in flight, and flight demonstrations are held three times daily. Prepare to be impressed as eagles, raptors, falcons, hawks, kites, buzzards, and vultures all take to the skies for an unforgettable spectacle.
The International Centre for Birds of Prey is located in Newent, around 95km west of Oxford, and is open daily from 10:30am-5:30pm (March to Oct), and 10:30am-4:30pm in November and February. Adult admission is £10.90.
