Admission to both the ICBP and Duncombe Park Gardens is through the Centre shop. On admission you will be issued with a coloured wristband. You are welcome to exit and re-enter the centre as often as you wish. All major credit cards are accepted.



There is ample free parking at the Centre, with disabled spaces and room for coaches too.


There are ladies and gents loos in the Parkland Centre, next to the shop. A separate disabled loo and baby changing area is also available.

We offer hot and cold drinks and a selection of snacks in our cafe area.

Our shop stocks a range of souvenirs and locally produced crafts and gifts.


During your visit you will see a large collection of exotic and spectacular birds of prey. There will be three flying demonstrations every day (two in the winter) and very often, there will be opportunities to see the birds being trained on the flying field.


We welcome group visits from schools and other organisations. Booked parties of 15 or more individuals can be given a guided tour of the centre by prior arrangement.


We look forward to you coming to visit
