Birds of Prey

Watch magnificent birds of prey and owls in the picturesque surroundings of the North Yorkshire countryside. Interact with them and see them hunt with their handlers. The birds, including peregrine falcons and eagle owls, will fly to you and land on your protected arm. A really exciting and educational experience and a rare chance to spend time with these majestic creatures. You will equally enjoy exploring North Yorkshire, one of England's most beautiful and pristine 'shires'.
