This is a fascinating introduction to an ancient and intriguing pursuit. See for yourself the extraordinary relationship between man and bird of prey. Falconry was originally introduced as a means of obtaining "food for the table". In Medieval Britain birds of prey were often present at grand occasions such as pageants, weddings and jousting tournaments. Even today seeing these magnificent birds up close is a very special experience and one which you won't forget.
You'll handle the birds yourself under the watchful eye of the professionals (depending on location), before they take over to perform an impressive aerial show. You will have lots of time to take some fantastic pictures of you and your new feathered friend!
This experience will last approximately 3 hours. This experience is for one person. There will be other people there on the day. Unfortunately this experience is not suitable for spectators.
There is no minimum age, but all children 16 and under must be accompanied by a paying adult. This experience is available on selected weekends, March to October.
