Looking for a thrilling day out? Bridlington Birds of Prey and Animal Park may be the answer.

Just a short drive from Bridlington seafront, the activity spot is perfect for young families that have an interest in nature and the outdoors.

The family-run wildlife sanctuary offers an array of fascinating displays, exhibits and a whole host of fun things to do for all ages.

One of the most popular activities is the series of exhilarating flying displays. An expert park ranger is at hand to give a detailed and entertaining insight into the lives of several species of birds, including owls, harriers, falcons and the humorous Australian Kookaburra.

Alongside watching them feed, you will also be able to see your new feathered friends fly, swoop and sing. Watch out though – whilst many of these incredible birds are expert aviators, there may be a few near misses, so make sure you hold onto your hats.

Little kids will be in awe as they see these captivating creatures in action.

These shows take place at 1pm and 3pm each day throughout the summer holidays. Meanwhile, a number of other workshops will be put on especially for school kids. You can enjoy watching the wallabies, racoons and emus feeding, as well as get to know intriguing reptiles.

A full list of times can be found on the Bridlington Birds of Prey and Animal Park Facebook page.

After getting up close to the birds, you can wander around the three-acre woodland and discover an assortment of strange and wonderful creatures. Meet meerkats, emus, racoon dogs and wallabies – see if you can spy a cute joey or two in a marsupial’s pouch.

Venture further and you will meet all sorts of friendly farm characters, including pigs, goats, donkeys, horses, sheep and even fluffy alpacas. If you’re brave enough, visitors are encouraged to pet and feed the animals.

Afterwards, put your feet up at the neighbouring cafe. Serving freshly prepared sandwiches and delicious treats, as well as teas and coffees, it makes for the ideal rest stop. Don’t forget to try the mouthwatering ice cream, especially on a sunny day.

And if you want something to remember the day by, the gift shop is a must-visit. There are plenty of novelty goods on offer, including cuddly toys, stationery and informational books for children and adults alike.

If you fancy staying over, the nearby Park Rose Village Caravan Park is a sound choice. With pitches and static options that are close to the beach, it makes the perfect base for a coastal break.

Bridlington Birds of Prey and Animal Park is open every day from 10:30am-4:30pm. Why not pay a visit this summer?
