We are the only bird of prey centre in the UK that focuses solely on our native species.
The British Bird of Prey Centre offers a fun-packed, full day out, for all ages.
You can take a stroll around our aviaries and learn all about the different birds that live and holiday here in the UK.
There are three amazing free-flying shows every day, each starring different species of raptor. You can watch Golden eagles, Red kites and Peregrine falcons flying within inches of you. All with the amazing backdrop of the National Botanic Garden of Wales.
If you are looking for even more excitement, you can have a go at flying a bird yourself, on our award-winning private and group experiences!
