Cumberland Bird of Prey Centre

Unique experiences in an inspirational location. 

Welcome to the Cumberland Bird of Prey Centre.  The leading bird of prey experience centre in the North of England and South Scotland. 

Established in 1993 as a visitor centre, the Cumberland Bird of Prey Centre has been providing activities for over 30 years. 

Visiting the Centre

The Cumberland Bird of Prey Centre is in the city of Carlisle  (west of Carlisle city centre).  If you wish to visit the centre you need to make an appointment or book a falconry course or activity.  If none of our courses meet your needs then please use our contact details to let us know about your requirements. 

Our Thurstonfield site allows us to concentrate on training and flying birds whilst keeping the centre looking at its best. The site sits in the Solway basin and is lucky enough to be the home to woodpeckers, red squirrels and roe deer, as well as numerous other birds and mammals.

Our courses, activity days and other activities remain the same as always and we are sure guests will enjoy the new surroundings as much as we do.

The Cumberland Bird of Prey Centre offers a wide variety of training courses and activities - from one-hour Hawk Walks  to Family Experiences - all from the centre in Thurstonfield, near Carlisle, Cumbria.  

Our site is fully accessible, we make some adjustments to services where wheelchair accesibility is more difficult. 

Our Courses and Activities are all coordinated from the centre based in Thurstonfield, near Carlisle, Cumbria.
