The British Bird of Prey Centre.

We are the only bird of prey centre in the UK that focuses solely on our native species.

We offer a fun-packed, full day out, for all ages. And because we are based inside the National Botanic Garden of Wales you get to enjoy the whole Garden included in your entry ticket.

At The British Bird of Prey Centre, you can take a stroll around our aviaries and learn all about the different birds that live and holiday here in the UK.

There are amazing free-flying shows every day, each starring different species of raptor. You can watch Golden eagles, Red kites and Peregrine falcons flying within inches of you. All with the amazing backdrop of the National Botanic Garden of Wales.

If you are looking for even more excitement, you can have a go at flying a bird yourself, on our award-winning private and group experiences!

Our aim is to give everyone the opportunity to interact with, and learn about, the birds of prey that can be found here in the UK and in doing so inspire communities to ensure their longevity.

“No one will protect what they don't care about; and no one will care about what they have never experienced" - David Attenborough

"The best display of raptors I’ve been to. Great narrative with information, humour and pace brilliantly executed. A real MUST for anyone who wants to be informed and entertained at the same time. Came away with a new respect for these creatures and those who look after them."

Rugby-Tourers - TripAdvisor

"We have been to quite a few birds of prey displays but this was head and shoulders above the rest. The setting is beautiful and watching the birds fly out across the valley is amazing. You also get to see the birds really close up and observe the amazing partnership between the birds and their handlers."
