Top 100 Attractions Review

Perched, (excuse the pun) within a cute little walled garden within the grounds of Lowther Castle, just outside Penrith, the Lakeland Bird of Prey Centre has been wowing it’s visitors now for decades. Along with its cute little cafe and shop, the centre really does have a lot to offer all of its visitors, whether your a bird lover or not. LBPC do displays every day and at the time of writing this review, they are in the afternoons, but it wouldn’t harm to give them a call before hand anyway, as really bad weather can affect the displays. It’s definitely worth noting that the centre is nothing to do with the castle or grounds and is a run as a separate business. I found the experience of the display to be really good and together with that, the admission fee to be very reasonable and the staff to be very friendly, so all in all you’ll have a great time here, without a doubt.

Attraction in Cumbria

Lakeland Bird of Prey Centre

Visit the birds displayed in the Walled Garden, followed by our daily flying display starts at 2pm and finishes at 4pm (birds are flown in most weather conditions, except heavy rain, strong winds, fog and when snowing). We fly a variety of different species throughout the two hour flying display and visitors are encouraged to have a turn at flying a bird of prey themselves under close supervision. Our aim is to conserve birds of prey through education, breeding, research and rehabilitation of injured and orphaned birds. We work closely with other centres and conservation programmes both in this country and abroad to protect birds of prey. During your visit, why not relax in our tearoom and picnic area, where you can enjoy home-made cakes, scones, light lunches and freshly ground coffee. Dog friendly.
