About the International Centre for Birds of Prey

2012 is the 45th anniversary year for the International Centre for Birds of Prey. Over the years a lot has changed at the Centre so if you haven’t been over the last four years you’ll certainly notice the changes.

For a great family day out in beautiful surroundings and the opportunity to see spectacular flying demonstrations, it’s a visit not to be missed.
