This is a wonderful centre which offers many experiences for the whole family. Falconry, Birds of Prey hunting, demonstrations, childrens events etc. They also have fun things like Hawk and Bafrn Owl Ring Bearing and Dove release for weddings. The center is found at Swinton Park, but is owned and run by Sophie Abbott. Very much appreciated experience!

It is very seldom that you can get so close to birds of prey, so enjoy Swinton's fantastic set-up. Well worth a visit.

Thank you again for the lovely experience. We really enjoyed the handling of the birds and especially the walk through the park with "H" the Harris Hawk. Stunning setting in Swinton Park.

We booked the owl experience as part of our stay at Swinton Park hotel. We got to meet all the birds (not just the owls), were given a lot of information and, most importantly, had so much fun!
