An eagle is a majestic creature and to see one up close is a rare, unforgettable experience. Enjoy an eagle handling afternoon in Kent learning about the natural behavior of these amazing birds of prey under the guidance of a resident eagle expert. During the afternoon, there is a chance to try eagle handling, fly four resident birds to the glove and experience the incredible sensation of having a huge eagle balanced on your arm. Take a camera as there are sure to be plenty of great photo opportunities, especially when you meet the centre’s resident Steller’s Sea Eagle – one of the largest birds of prey in the world! At the end of the experience, head back to the centre for a hot cup of tea and a well-earned slice of cake.


Seven days a week throughout the year. Dates fill up quickly, so allow several weeks advance booking notice, and even longer for popular summer weekend dates.


Please call the venue for a weather check the day before setting out. If the experience is cancelled because of bad weather, it can be re-booked for an alternative date.

How long does the experience last?

Starts at 1.30pm and finishes around 4.30pm. During winter months (November – March), the experience begins and ends half an hour earlier.

How many other people?

Share the experience with one other person, plus an experienced eagle handler.

Can I take people to watch?

One spectator can be brought along at a cost of £20, payable on the day, and who must be booked in advance (minimum age is 14). There is a cafe for visitors. Dogs are NOT permitted on-site.

What do I wear?

Dress for the outdoors and wear wellies or walking boots. Bring a change of clothes if the weather is very bad, as most of the day is spent outside. Dont forget your camera and/or a pair of binoculars.

Are there any restrictions?

Minimum age is 18. Participants need to be reasonably fit as there is a fair amount of walking involved, often over uneven ground (therefore unsuited for wheelchair users).

Anything Else?

There are lots of fascinating creatures at this venue, including reptiles as well as many different species of birds.
