Overview
More
Hawkridge bird of prey centre is a small family run centre, located within the grounds of the world of country life. Set in over 100 acres of beautiful Devon country side, it is a great backdrop in which to fly our birds. As well as providing flying displays for the park during their open season we also offer courses and experience days, where you get to handle and fly our wonderful birds. These sessions are run by appointment only on a 1-1 basis meaning you get to enjoy a nice relaxing day flying birds at a pace that suits you. Courses and experiences run 365 days a year. ( weather permitting)

Our family saw a short show here. The lady speaker was good. She made us laugh a few times when the birds went the opposite way to her instructions. The information was interesting and the birds flew over your head.
