See owls in their aviaries and tour the wood with them
Handle different owl species and learn all about them
Watch a fantastic owl flying display
On this experience you'll get to spend an evening in the company of owls. Your experience starts outside, where your falconer runs through what you can expect from the evening. Then you'll go on a tour of the owl wood, where you'll see your first owls in their aviaries, and hear them start their spooky evening calls. Back at the centre enjoy some light refreshments, before getting up close and personal with these magnificent birds. You'll handle a number of different species, learning all about them and having some great photo opportunities. Then watch a fantastic owl flying display before ending with a question and answer session.
Selected Saturday evenings from mid February to mid October.
