During this week I visited the Cotswold Falconry Centre for the first time. The Falconry Centre is right next to the Batsford Arboretum and home to approx 60 different species of Birds of Prey.
The centre opens at 10.30 and flying displays take place each day at 11.30am, 1.30pm, and 3pm, with each diplay using different birds. During British summer time, March 29th until October 26th, there is an extra display at 4.30pm.
There is a decent sized car park, toilets and a cafe in the adjacent Batsford Arboretum garden centre,
Prices (as at writing of this post)
Children (4 – 15 years) £5
Family ticket (2 adults & 2 kids) £25
Further and up to date information may be found via this link to the Cotswold falconry centre home page.
Here is a selection of photo’s from the day.
