Falconry Days is a family business with a real passion for birds of prey. If you share fascination of these amazing birds then this is the place for you.
As there are no spectators allowed (unless they pay), the best option for a group with kids is the Family Falconry Experience, or for one adult and one child, the Mini Family Activity Day.
You start by meeting and holding the birds that you will be flying and learning all about them from their hunting techniques to their habitats. Then you will actually get to fly a variety of birds of prey including agile hawks and stealthy owls.
If you love owls, then try the Owl Encounter where you will get t spend 2 hours handling different owls from around the world. Learn about native British species like the Barn owl, Tawny owl and Little owl and also owls from overseas. Feel the amazingly soft feathers and find out why their eyes are so large, then watch them fly free.
Falconry and Hunting experiences are also available. Plus there is a visitor centre.
