The Welsh Hawking Centre


Situated in 25 acres of scenic parkland, with ample car parking, a souvenir shop, and light refreshments available in the Cafe during the Summer Season. Visitors are welcome to picnic on our tables in the large mown grass areas of the park. At the Welsh Hawking Centre you will see over 200 Bird of Prey including Eagles, Owls, Hawks, Falcons and Buzzards. They can be seen and photographed in the mews, weathering ground, breeding and if you are fast enough, flying! We also have rabbits, chickens and chicks for the young and not so young to touch, smell and feed. This is very important for children to learn to love animals in latter life. We pride ourselves on the personal contact we have with our visitors, so please ask any of the staff any questions or help you may need.


Sitting on the site that was once the great Cardiff Zoo, is the Welsh Hawking Centre. Don't be deceived by the name though as Hawks are not all you will find here! This attraction has gone from housing many famous animals from all over the world to now being the home of just over 200 birds of prey. But it doesn't just stop there as there are many other animals running around from rabbits to guinea pigs, ducks, geese and rabbits all roaming around and very friendly. As I was being shown round this great attraction it was so clear to see the love the owners have for all of their birds and animals. But with bigger plans and new things being added all the time a visit here is worth every penny.
