Chester Falconry & Nature Gardens
Fun for all the family…
The beautiful cathedral gardens now play host to one of the most amazing aerial displays imaginable.
This family friendly attraction gives you the chance to see some of the most spectacular birds of prey, right up close, in the heart of the city and learn all about birds, reptiles, bugs and more!
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
