Riverside Falconry is set in the beautiful Tyne valley, Newburn with miles of open countryside and ancient woodlands, giving you the chance to enjoy the birds in their natural environment.

The Riverside Falconry aims to provide a memorable experience , which is reflected in the positive reviews they have received - they are ranked No 1 in the Outdoor Activity category on TripAdvisor in New castle upon Tyne , Voted 2nd top North East family attraction of the year award and the runner up in the Newcastle Green Business of the Year award .

This two and a half hour bird handling experience offers you with the chance to get hands on with the magnificent birds of prey. You will appreciate these birds and their beauty and get to watch their sheer power in this memorable session in a way only Riverside Falconry can offer.

To begin with you will be introduced to four native and non-native hawks and owls and if the conditions are right you may even be able to carry out some flying to make the encounter extra special.

In addition to this as an added bonus, you will also have the opportunity to meet some of the mini beasts, handle snakes, lizards, frogs and stick insects.

In the event of the experience taking place outdoors, please wear appropriate footwear and warm clothing that you don’t mind getting muddy. Failing that why not grab your complimentary tea or coffee!
