Owl Experience


For owl and bird lovers, enjoy a truly breathtaking experience and marvel at our Barn Owl Socrates in all his glory. Hold this majestic bird as it flies from our Keeper and remains perched on your gloved hand.

Undertake some basic training before we take you to a secluded area of the Animal Park where Socs will free fly to your outstretched hand. You can learn some fascinating facts about these amazing animals from our talented bird experts. You’ll learn about the unique adaptations that make owls such fantastic hunters, such as that Socs is completely silent in flight!
