Don’t miss the Woodlands Falconry Centre which is one of the best in the UK. The Falconry Centre is located within Woodlands Family Theme Park. The indoor aviaries and outdoor flying ground are superb. They are designed not only to show off these handsome birds but to give them the most comfortable and natural conditions as possible. The Zoo inspectors said the weathering’s are some of the best they have seen in the country.

Woodlands Falconry Centre is home to a large selection of magnificent birds of prey. From the small little Burrowing Owls Ernie & Els to Malachite the Indian Tawny Eagle.

The breath taking aerial displays show off the magnificent collection of Eagles, Owls, Hawks and Falconry Birds. Our Indian Tawny Eagle has a giant wingspan and look out for his great talons which are designed to snatch heavy prey. Our highly experienced Falconers have a unique knowledge of the art of Falconry and the habits of Raptors around the world. They will happily discuss the birds hunting skills, what they eat, the history of Falconry and all the questions you have ever wanted to ask about the wonderful world of Birds of Prey.

Flying Displays take place at the Falconry Centre 12.30 and 3.00pm daily Easter to early November weather permitting. Entry to the Falconry Centre and its excellent displays are free, an added bonus to make your holiday more special.

Join us for a glimpse into the spectacular and magical world of birds of prey. Watch our birds soaring and swooping over the beautiful Devon countryside.  Our highly skilled Falconers have produced a wonderful display to show the variety of our birds and their skills.  You could be the lucky one to hold one of these magnificent birds on your gloved arm. The spectacular display with great talks from our Falconers will entertain all the family with plenty of time for questions and interactions.
