Online Booking Only

Hawks & Squawks is an exciting new falconry centre opening on Saturday 9th October 2021.

Come along and meet 22 birds from around the world. We've got a varied range of male and female hawks, goshawks, falcons, kestrels, eagles and owls, all housed in brand-new purpose-built aviaries which you are welcome to look around seven days a week from 10am to 5pm. 

Entrance to Hawks & Squawks falconry centre and the flying displays are included in the usual cost of entry to the farm park and woodlands. Private experiences are available to pre-book at an additional cost, detailed below.

There are no displays on Tuesdays. All displays and experiences are weather permitting. 

Flying displays

Join us at Hawks & Squawks as a selection of three to four birds of prey showcase their talents. Learn some fun facts about these impressive birds and take a seat as birds of prey fly over your head, reaching speeds of up to 200 miles per hour. If you're lucky, you might find a bird takes a shine to you and decides to land on your shoulder! 

  • Our 30-minute flying displays take place six days a week at 1pm, with an additional morning show at weekends and during school holidays* at 11.30am. (Scroll down for school holiday dates. There are no displays on Tuesdays.)
  • Flying displays are included in your price of your visit to the farm.
  • For safety reasons, once the show has started, we ask you not to leave your seat.
