If you love your birds then Haven Falconry Bird of Prey Centre is the place for you, you'll be treated to a large collection of different species of birds of prey, reared and trained by the falconers themselves. There are daily flying displays at 11.40 and 13.40 (subject to weather conditions and special events). Visitors can also enjoy the reptile and insect house as well as the ferret skywalk and other furry friends.



Haven Falconry have a large, wonderful collection of birds including owls, hawks, falcons, eagles and vultures, each being reared and trained by the dedicated and skilled falconers, and with a hands-on approach you can get up-close and personal with the birds. The Falconry activities can be interactive, so you can experience the thrill of handling the birds, reptiles or taking one of their furry friends, a ferret for a walk. In addition there is a pets corner, a gift shop and picnic area.

For a more hands-on experience they offer individual or small groups the opportunity to have a 'Birds of Prey Experience'  lasting about 1 hour, where you will meet a selection of their birds and learn about their different characteristics, speed capabilities and hunting habits then get the chance to fly some to your gloved hand! Take a 'Hawk Walk' lasting about an hour, and we’ll take you along public rights of way through some of the lovely Havenstreet countryside. You will handle and fly the Hawks and be able to observe their skills and agility. The 'Owl Encounter' introduces you to these most special of birds, with the unique chance to handle and fly them and truly see just how graceful they really are. With this encounter, it includes our delightful Barn Owl as well as 2 or 3 other different species. This experience also lasts about an hour.
