Welcome to Pembrokeshire Falconry

Visit Wales number 1 Activity in West Wales 2018; Pembrokeshire Falconry gives you the opportunity to fly birds of prey yourself, with the backdrop of beautiful gardens. And now all of our experience days include entry into our new visitor centres.
Based in the National Botanic Garden of Wales, Carmarthenshire
On 1st June 2018 we opened the first dedicated British Bird of Prey Centre in the UK within the National Botanic Garden of Wales. All of our bird of prey experiences now take place here and include entrance into the gardens and the new centre. Once you have finished flying yourself you can visit 20 native raptors in their homes and enjoy 3 different flying displays.
Based in Picton Castle & Gardens, Pembrokeshire
If you love owls our beautiful Secret Owl Garden is hidden away in the Bluebell Walk in Picton Castle garden. Housing 25 different species of owls from around the world, this is the place to come to do our Owl Experience.
All of our experiences are 100% private. By only taking one booking at a time, we are able to make each moment you spend with the birds all the more special, as it’s tailored to you and your family and friends. You won’t find a stranger in your flying photos!
Our aim is to give everyone, no matter how old or how young, the chance to experience that thrill of having a bird of prey or owl, fly to your glove. Our birds are trained by us so that we know that they are safe for anyone to handle, therefore you can relax and just enjoy every second.
Walking at your own pace through the gardens you will get a chance to see the birds swooping from the trees and gliding over colourful flowers. All of the birds have their own natural traits and quirky personalities. By the end of your experience you will feel like you’ve made some friends for life.
We want you to have fun in a safe environment, so you can experience nature at its best, whilst learning about these incredible animals. The welfare of our birds is crucial and you won’t find anyone here who doesn’t get the chance to get out and fly on a regular basis. After all, what would you do if you’d been given wings!
We are not professional photographers, but with the help of a good camera, we will also take a lot of action shots of you whilst you are flying and send them to you afterwards. So that at the end of the day you are guaranteed to have at least one shot that will make ‘the frame’. You are, of course, welcome to take as many photos as you like too, this is just a little something we do for you to say thank you for flying with us.
