We use many tried and tested falconry techniques here at the Cornish Birds of Prey Centre. It is our aim to promote a very high standard of falconry – but not to encourage falconry. We don’t actually run falconry training courses here at the centre, instead we provide a range of experiences, and a more in depth look into falconry (the 5 day falconry course). These experiences are designed to allow people to spend time with, and get up close and personal with the birds. Our experiences let you be a part of their world for a while, it’s not about teaching falconry or bird handling, but to simply enjoy learning about, and observing these amazing birds in a way you can never do in the wild.
Our falconry courses are all year round and are ‘one to one’ unless you wish to participate with a friend, which we welcome.
All of our falconry experiences are completely hands-on, with you flying the birds yourself under the supervision of our experienced falconer.
A spectator, be it a friend or family member – is able to accompany the person doing the experience. They will be able to capture the participants experience by photo/video, or can simply watch them enjoy their experience – all for the entrance fee of £8.00.
1hr Handling Birds of Prey (All Year) £30.
Half Day Falconry Experience (All Year) – Handling & Flying £65.
Please Note: The minimum age for our Falconry Experiences is 14.
We have found that our experiences make great presents, because of this we now have gift vouchers available in our online shop, all are valid for twelve months from the date of purchase.
