Cotswold Falconry Centre

Cotswold Falconry is home to over 60 species of incredible birds of prey, including majestic eagles, iconic falcons and endearing owls.
Open since 1988, Cotswold Falconry has developed into one of the leading bird of prey centres in the UK. Over this time, thousands of people of all ages have enjoyed finding out about the ancient art of falconry and how its skills are used to demonstrate the natural behaviour of the birds. Set against the beautiful surrounding Cotswold countryside, we hope you take away a greater appreciation for these amazing birds and a better understanding of their conservation needs.

Cotswold Falconry also offer ‘Flying Starts’ and ‘Owl Experiences’, which give a lucky participant the opportunity to come eye-to-eye with some beautiful bird species and experience the majesty of flying a bird of prey to their gloved hand. More information about these sessions and their availability can be found on their website.
