International Centre for Birds of Prey (ICPB)
Set in 10 acres of rolling parkland and ancient oak woodland. The ICBP centre houses the largest collection of Birds of Prey in the north of England. They have around 100 eagles, vultures, owls, falcons and hawks. Birds range in size from the tiny Burrowing Owls up the gigantic Steller’s Sea Eagles. Also in spacious aviaries are their breeding birds.
In the Hawk Walk you will find their trained birds – these can be seen (and photographed) from close quarters. You won’t have the problems of photographing through wire mesh.
They fly the birds in 3 daily flying demonstrations – please see their website for summer and winter flying times. Different birds are used in each demo and do make sure you bring your camera, they are sure to be the highlight of your visit.
Founded in Gloucestershire in 1967 they are world leaders in the captive breeding, care and conservation of raptors. The Duncombe Park branch first opened in March 2013.
Opening Times: From 1st February until 24th December. 10 am until 5.30pm (or dusk if earlier).
