Rutland Falconry and Owl Centre is a truly unforgettable experience for those wanting to find out more about birds of prey. They offer a number of exciting courses, such as the two hour Hawk or Owl experience which allows guests to have a first-hand experience of walking with one of the birds whilst learning about them at the same time, so those with a passion for the animals will find this both exciting and educational – and not just children! The knowledge that the owners and volunteers have of the birds as well as the surroundings is amazing, and it is clear that they value what they do and make sure that the birds are well looked after. If you don’t want to have a walk with one of the Owls or Falcons then you are welcome to have a look around the area on your own accord - you will still find out a lot about the birds and the conservation itself and get to see the birds too. It’s a wonderful gift idea, and a great day out for a family or group of friends looking to try something a little different. Why not go for something to eat after your visit?
