International Centre for Birds of Prey
The International Centre for Birds of Prey is situated on the outskirts of Newent, Gloucestershire.
It is home to the most significant Birds of Prey Collection in the world.
Falcons, hawks, buzzards, kites, caracaras and secretary birds all live and breed here in Gloucestershire.
The aviaries are barn like structures and house the breeding birds in great comfort regardless of the weather.
The Hawk Walk where the trained birds live was rebuilt for our 30th Anniversary and opened by HRH Princess Royal in September 1997.
This area gives superb photo opportunities with birds only a few feet away and no wire. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable and delighted to answer questions.
There are wonderful gardens with plants, shrubs, trees and seasonal planting. The flying ground is shaded by two walnut trees and approached by a new tree arbour, daily flying demonstrations take place here. Please telephone for dates and times.
Experience days, courses, corporate days and evenings are held throughout the year.
We also run short, half day courses for adults and children which give an exciting introduction to the world of falconry.
Please telephone for details. Special tours for schools and groups.
