Overview

An incredible opportunity to experience the ancient art of falconry and get close to Birds of Prey either in their natural habitats or specially designed centres. You’ll even have the opportunity to interact with the incredible creatures and learn how to fly them to your glove! Allowed to naturally pursue their instincts to pounce, soar, quarter and mantle, these magnificent birds are so graceful, and feeling their awesome power as they land on your fist is a second-to-none experience! Upon arrival you’ll take a tour of the facility, meeting trainers and learning all about the individual characteristics, hunting and eating habits and flight speeds of different birds of prey. You’ll then be trained to safely fly a bird to your hand using a gauntlet. Trained handlers will be around at all times to ensure your safety and answer any questions you may have during this unforgettable day!

absolutely fantastic
22 July 2014
We went to Eagle Heights in Kent and arrived at 10.30. Parking in a small rough area . Following the sign, we booked in and was greeted by Emma who stayed with us all day . She introduced herself, took our food menu ,explained the health and safety issues and took us through to a large room where we flew 4 different raptures, learning the terminology and every detail of the birds.(answering every question asked) After this we had our dinner and was allowed sometime to wander around the park to view the other lovely birds and animals there. There were displays going on outside and plenty to see inside . At 1.30 we met up with Emma again and were given our gloves and bags . We took 2 harrier hawks out into the meadow and took turns calling them to hand . Our group consisted of 4 couples, each couple had 1 guest .The guest was allowed to take photos and paid a fee which was also good value for money. At 4.30 we went back for tea and a drink, said good-bye to everyone and had a look at some reptiles that we had missed. It was a fantastic experience that I will always remember. Emma ,the staff and the raptors made this day unforgettable. Thank-you! It was well worth traveling to from Sheffield.

Amazing!
23 August 2012
Went to Gauntlet in Knutsford and wow, what an amazing day. The staff were very friendly and even though there were other people there it felt very personal. I learnt how to handle the birds and to tie the falconers knot and flew some fantastic birds. There were 2 public displays through the day that we got to watch too and the birds they fly are so varied and fly and behave in their own unique way. We flew several different birds ourselves and this was brilliant, you only ever see falconers at displays do this so to be involved was great! When it got to a point where I thought we were ready to end the day (which I didn't want to happen) we still had an hour or two left. This experience gives alot of involvement and alot of fun without rushing you around. An amazing and unique experience and I'd reccomend to everyone I know!

This gift was for my husband as a birthday present and what a brilliant day out it was too. The staff especially John were really helpful and gave us lots of information. Flying the birds and seeing them at such a close range was spectacular. A thoroughly good day out which we can both recommend. I am attaching a few photographs which I hope you will also enjoy.
