Visit Thorp Perrow Arboretum and Gardens near Bedale, North Yorkshire set in 100 acres of woodland and enjoy a superb day out for all the family.

Bird of Prey and Mammal Centre

The Falcons of Thorp Perrow is the ultimate family day out, incorporating the opportunity to learn more about birds of prey and associated wildlife, with the enjoyment of hands on experience for all the family.


Our regular flying demonstrations will not only give the opportunity to witness the breathtaking ability of eagles, falcons, hawks, vultures and owls from all five continents of the world, but also an opportunity to participate in the flying demonstrations, under the guidance of our trained staff. Demonstrations second to none, including lively and informative commentary, are held three times daily in spring, summer and autumn, weather permitting – Meet the Owls at 11.30 am, Flying Displays at 1.30 pm, 3.30 pm.
Winter flying display at 1.30pm.


An opportunity to “Meet the Birds!” is available for 15 minutes after each demonstration under the supervision of our staff.


In the springtime, the ultimate experience for any child is meeting with one of our young owls and falcons, hatched through our breeding programme, and throughout the seasons. New arrivals can be seen going through our training programme.
