“Contact us to book a ‘Birds of Prey Experience’ and you will soon be handling and flying hawks, falcons and owls, enjoying hawk walks and watching displays”
Our experiences also make great gifts for special occasions so why not treat someone you love with a gift that they will remember forever.
The experience will be shared with a group of up to four people receiving a real hands on and up close birds of prey encounter. Allowing everyone to have a birds of prey sat on their fist and at the same time being educated in a fun way about that bird in particular, its role in the wild, and also the importance of the work that it does with us in captivity.
Within the session, people will have the chance to handle up to six different birds including owls, hawks and falcons from the UK and all around the world.
Another big part of the experience is the chance for your group to witness a selection of the birds actually flying either to and from the falconers or to the gloved fist of one of the group members. This gives you a real insight into the flight, wingspan and grace of the birds of prey.
The experience lasts for 1 and a half hours and comprises of ; a tour and of the centre where your falconer for the session will present to you a selection of our birds of prey and offer the rare opportunity to get up close and personal with several birds including handling and feeding.
Once you’re comfortable being around and handling the birds, the next stage is to begin a flying training session, were the group can enjoy watching the grace and agility of the birds.
The sessions are educational but with an element of humour and fun, making for a wonderful experience for all ages and making an ideal gift for any occasion.

The 2 falconers at the Croxteth park farm birds of prey centre are:
Martin, who has 20 years’ experience with birds of prey and over 8 years ago, turned a hobby into a career. In that time Martin has built up a wide selection of owls, hawks and falcons and even an eagle, to form a great selection of quality birds of prey and is looking forward to sharing his passion for these amazing creatures with visitors to the farm.
Our second falconer is Marc, who has dedicated his life to keeping and caring for birds of prey, providing knowledge and enthusiasm and is really looking forward to working with a wide range of groups and individuals at the Croxteth park birds of prey centre for many years to come.
At Walton festival 2016
Today we visited your Birds of Prey centre and it was thoroughly enjoyable
The premises (even though they are new) are both bird and human friendly.
Really enjoyed flying the birds and to go into the field and fly Ralph freely from the trees seemed so natural.
Afterwards had a lovely stroll around the farm to see the animals and topped it off with bacon/sausage barms(delicious)
Thank you for almost enjoyable day
