Let your imagination take flight with this immersive activity. See soaring birds that will amaze and delight you as you embark on our Birds of Prey Lake District experience.
Take a delightful 2-minute walk across the Deer Park or a short drive to The Lake District Wildlife Park and meet our keeper. After enjoying a flying display on the park your bird of prey experience will begin.
Our falconer will teach you how to recall and hold the birds, starting with an owl. Following this, we will move outside and step it up a gear with one of our free flying hawks who will fly from a tree to your gloved hand. Once you feel a little more confident, hold and fly either Bill- our bald eagle or Gonzo – our hooded vulture. With ample opportunity for photos, a camera is essential!
Following the experience, take time to explore the Wildlife Park, watch the demonstrations and treat yourself to a cup of tea or coffee and a slice of cake.
Bird of Prey experiences take place year-round in the afternoon. Minimum 2 persons, Maximum 4 persons. 16 year +.
