Attraction Information

Icarus Falconry, also known as Holdenby Falconry Centre, is a family run business set in the grounds of Holdenby House Estate, and is home to a unique collection of birds of prey! The centre provides a great selection of exciting hands on experiences that allow you to get up close to some of these magnificent birds.

There are a wide variety of owls, hawks, eagles, and falcons, with birds of prey ranging from the tiny Burrowing Owl to the Black Eagle! Anyone over 10 years of age can enjoy a half day Hawk and Owl Experience, which begins with a look around the centre to see the superb collection of birds, followed by the chance to fly a variety of owls.

Next is a Hawk Walk, where you will be able to exercise their Harris Hawks in the splendid Holdenby House gardens as you retrace the footsteps of King Charles I, who walked the garden as a prisoner. Make sure you bring a camera to record your special day!

There is also an Introduction to Falconry Experience for ages 12 and older, plus a number of other great (but pricier) Experiences. A unique day out with one of the rarest collections of birds of prey in the UK! Something to remember!
