Overview

The art of falconry has been passed down from generation to generation and is still going strong all over the country. This is your chance to learn from the experts with this half day introduction to handling these wonderful creatures. You will be guided by a team of expert Bird of Prey handlers throughout your experience, who will be on hand to give you a fascinating insight into the history of the birds and the techniques used to train them. You will be given a demonstration of how to handle the birds after taking a complete tour of the facilities. Then it’s your turn to have a go at flying these wonderful beasts, all under the watchful eye of your handler. You will have ample opportunity to have your photo taken with the birds throughout the course of the experience, creating memories to treasure forever.
