International Centre for Birds of Prey, Newent - by Mummytolittlee

Posted by Mummytolittlee on 15 June 2014 at 10:51

The International Centre for Birds of Prey is one of the oldest dedicated birds of prey centres in the world. It’s located in the pretty old market town of Newent, about 8 miles North West of Gloucester and on the edge of the Forest of Dean.

Visiting the centre is a fantastic day out, with a surprising amount to keep children occupied. There are spectacular flight displays at set times during the day, and if little ones get restless they can head off to the play area and maze in the same flying field. There are 11 acres of space to enjoy and an education room, and during the spring and summer months children can visit the baby birds.

The gift shop sells, amongst other things, a variety of bird handling experience days, and for rumbly tummies the café offers delicious home-made soups, paninis and cakes.

The centre itself is housed within a beautiful garden, with climbing plants and archways, and several spots where you can sit and relax with an ice-cream. The staff are very welcoming, and have created an atmosphere that is relaxed and friendly.

Keep an eye on the website for details of what’s on throughout the year.
