The team at Puxton Park Falconry Centre are passionate about promoting conservation and the history of falconry. Meet our Falconers who will show these beautiful birds of prey up close in a natural environment. Then there’s our ridable miniature train that runs on a ground level, scale model railway track around our conservation area.
With over 20 different breeds of birds, the Falconry Centre allows you to view these beautiful birds of prey up close.
Birds of prey were very much protected in the middle ages and have helped man throughout the centuries although sadly, we have not always been kind to them. With the introduction of modern agriculture and use of toxic chemicals, industrial farming caused major damage to the native birds of prey, almost totally wiping out the entire population of Peregrine Falcons and other birds of prey in certain areas. At Puxton Park we are doing our utmost to reverse these trends through our dedicated conservation and education programme. We hope that by raising public awareness of the needs and habitats of birds of prey through centres such as ours, we can all play a part in the preservation of these fine creatures to enrich the lives of future generations. Various 1-hour handling experiences are available to book by contacting our Falconer Gary Lawrence.
