Falconry Courses & Activities
Activities and Training
The Cumberland Bird of Prey Centre offers a wide variety of falconry and hawking training courses and activities - from one-hour Hawk Walks to Five-Day Hawking Courses - all from the centre in Thurstonfield, near Carlisle, Cumbria. There are activities and courses to suit all to give exciting days out in North Cumbria and South West Scotland.
You can book some activities yourself (below) or you can call up and schedule them as you wish using our automated calendar For all other services please give us a call 01228 576158
All of our activities are designed for the participants, but if you are looking to make a day of it - why not add a few spectators onto the experience. When you get to the check out - you can add as many spectators as you want. All spectators get to take in the experience, but we do not allow spectators to handle birds.
We now run a group session for one family in the same group for £55.00 and this will include access to the site for 1 hour and meeting all our birds. Especially designed for children.
>We also provide some learning resources about our birds after the session if you are learning from home. Ask us about this.
This one hour Couple's Experience is designed for couple's and is very popular. An hour's experience with all of the birds in our centre, plus a short flight with one of our birds
If you love owls - then our one hour Owl Experience is the activity for you. Designed for two persons (but you can add extra participants), you will get up an in-depth experience exploring the four species on our site.
