National Centre for Birds of Prey

The National Centre for Birds of Prey opened in the historic grounds of Duncombe Park in March 2013. Boasting the largest and most varied collection of birds of prey in the north of England the centre is a world leader in captive breeding and conservation of these magnificent creatures.

Come and see the tiny Burrowing Owls and the gigantic Steller's Sea Eagles, and all manner of eagles, hawks, falcons, owls and vultures in between.

We fly our trained birds in the rolling parkland three times a day. Different birds feature in each demonstration, many visitors stay for all three demos.

With around 100 birds set in 10 acres, you should allow 2–3 hours to see everything. However you are welcome to stay all day. An indoor flying area is available for wet days. What ever the weather, we guarantee to show you birds in flight.

The Owl House Cafe serves proper coffee, numerous teas and delicious home made food. The blackboard displays the daily specials.

A children's play area can be found near the car park.

We have lots of parking, and it is free.

Admission to the centre includes admission to the walks in the parkland.
