Overview

Please check website for seasonal opening times Award winning WCBOP is based in the stunning grounds of Walworth Castle Hotel minutes from the A1 and offers fabulous falconry experiences and daily falconry displays, the centre has a wide range of Owls, Hawks and Falcons all of which you can get up close and personal too, we pride ourselves on offering a very hands on personal service. New this year is the childrens nature trail through the ancient woodland and a super bird feeding station which is great for keen bird spotters or photographers. Once entry is paid customers are able to come and go througout the day of purchase. Flying displays at 1.30pm and 3pm. Please see website for more information.

Yes, the bird of prey centre was all on the flat, so there should be no problems at all with a wheelchair.
