Thursday 21 March

Haven Falconry

At Havenstreet Station our friends from Haven Falconry offer you the opportunity to enjoy the thrills and excitement of falconry and birds of prey.

Visitors to the Railway have an opportunity to enjoy two daily flying displays and visit the recently opened Bird of Prey Centre (see below).

Haven Falconry was established by Paul Martin, a skilled handler who had lifelong experience in falconry which started in the late 1960s when he was just 11 years old!  

Paul is no longer with us but his great pride in his personal collection of birds continues, all of which have been bred in captivity, with their care and welfare being the utmost priority.

Flying Displays

On Railway operating days there are daily flying displays at 11.40am and 1.40pm (weather/events permitting) in the Showground.  Visitors to the Railway can enjoy these displays at no additional cost.

NOTE: The Bird of Prey Centre is independent of the Steam Railway and separate charges apply - see below.

New Bird of Prey Centre
