This is a fascinating introduction to an ancient and intriguing pursuit. See for yourself an 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!

Yes I recommend this product.
I would never have done this if someone hadn't bought the experience for me. I've always been interested in birds of prey and thought I knew a lot about the subject but how wrong I was. Being so close to a Peregrin Falcon streaking past us at full speed was the icing on the cake. Great day.

My friend gave me the ticket for my birthday - what a wonderful 3 hours I had in a beautiful area of the country. The 'hands on' experience with the birds was fantastic!

I chose this activity from a selection offed in a gift experience book that was given for my birthday. It was described as a falconry day to get up close and personal with the birds and to fly some individuals - yes all that happens but in a group of 30 people, with just 5 birds to get to hold (4 when a nervousness newbie had to go back to quarters) and three birds to fly it was all a bit crowded. Yes we all got a go but in the 3 hour experience you held birds for a total of 20 mins and flew for maybe 8 mins personally - lots of standing around, even with interesting commentary. Also the term 'showground' in the venue title made you think there were some facilities - it was just a public field and you had to drive 10 minutes to local superstore to go to the loo! Not great when you've driven nearly 2 hours to get there. The bird handler herself was extremely knowledgableand very nice,
