An unforgettable day for birds of prey enthusiasts and nature lovers! You and your companion will get to spend the day with some of the most fearsome hunting birds in the UK and the people who look after them, learning about the history of falconry as well as the practice of this ancient royal sport. You'll start the day by getting to know the keepers at Coolings Lifestyle. Then you’ll hear a fascinating talk from an experienced falconer about falconry and the birds that you’ll be flying during the day – gaining an understanding of how to look after, manage and fly these magnificent birds. After lunch, you’ll head out onto the six-acre nature trail and watch a falconer swing the lure to simulate the aerial battle between a hawk and its prey, before heading into the woods with a Harris Hawk.

Amazing experience!

Superb day out, absolutely recommend to anyone who loves birds/ wildlife! Great and very knowledgeable team and of course interacting with the owls and falcons in their own environment was truly amazing! Some of the pics/ vids will stay in our ‘favourites’ folder forever! Last but not least Archie and Kiki are true superstars ??????!

My wife and I have just spent a very enjoyable day at the Willows birds of prey centre at Coolings Lifestyle, Knockholt, Kent. We did the one day, Introduction to Falconry course. In the morning we were instructed by Jill who went through a good selection of owls with us which we flew and handled. Jill was very knowledgeable and does indeed keep her own birds. After a light lunch which is included in the price of a ticket in the Coolings cafe, we then had an afternoon session with a keeper called Josh, who went through a lot of the birds of prey with us. Again a very knowledgeable chap who has been there quite a few years and also has birds of his own.   We have been to willows before on a day ticket for a look to see what it was like before deciding to do the falconry course. In all a very enjoyable day for both myself and my wife and we would highly recommend this centre. We hope to go again next year. Thank you all, for a great day.
