Fun for all the family…

The beautiful cathedral gardens now play host to one of the most amazing aerial displays imaginable.

Owls, falcons, hawks and one incredibly mischievous vulture called Tinks, call our falconry home. Our expert falconers are always on hand to talk about any aspect of the birds and their habitats

From daily flying displays to children’s nature trails and a look at the other wildlife in the centre, there is plenty to keep all of the family entertained!
