Overview

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.

On arrival you will be greeted by one of the falconers and given an overview of the disciplines and history of falconry, followed by a brief introduction to the husbandry and welfare of birds and the equipment used in falconry. You will then have the opportunity to fly two birds "to the fist" so you can experience the unforgettable sensation of having a magnificent bird of prey on your arm. From start to finish you will be in the thick of the action whilst the falconer guides and educates you in aspects of the raptor world.

Programmes and birds vary depending on location, please check on booking.
