We had a fascinating couple of hours at the National Centre for Birds of Prey - the highlight being the amazing flying show which was very entertaining, informative and engaging. Highly recommended if you are in or around the beautiful market town of Helmsley.

Response from Charlie_Heap | Property representative |
Follow the brown signs to "birds of prey centre" and "Duncombe park". We are a 2 minute drive or 12 minute walk up a slight hill through the parklands
Is there any discounts with York Pass please?

Response from Charlie_Heap | Property representative |
The York Pass gets you in for free - how's that for a discount?!
Do you have a disabled or carers concession?

Response from Charlie_Heap | Property representative |
Hi - we offer free admission to the carer, so long as that carer is essential for the disabled person to visit. All the best
