Watch demonstrations, take part in courses or simply get to know your new-found feathered friends at North East Falconry Centre. With over 11 years of experience across the team, this is a winged winner of a day out!
Start with a Hawk Walk through the woodlands where as a family you can take one of the birds for a private, beak-to-beak flying experience. The centre is home to hawks, owls, the odd Indian Eagle owl chick and injured strays, as well as a few celebrities in the mix. The team regularly supplies members of their roost to film and TV, so make sure you get a signature!
At certain times of year, kids can feed adorable newborn chicks as they begin their lives at the centre. Then if your little bird brains want to try something more adventurous, why not give them a go at an Introduction to Falconry? It will teach them all about owning a bird of prey and give them a respect for the wild side of nature.
