It's a wonderful 'taster'. Next time - it will have to be jan or feb now, I shall book a 'one to one' which will be worth every penny. I first visited 20 years ago & go at least once a year and it is by far the best falconry centre I have had the privilege to visit. The personnel are professional and extremely caring in their handling of the birds.

About This Deal

The Deal

Visitors will have the opportunity to handle, fly and learn about various birds of prey from experienced falconers over the course of one or two days. Those on the one-day Eagle Experience will start with a smaller bird to learn some handling skills and go for a walk around the centre. This will lead to flying them and building up to the likes of Golden, Amercian Bald and African Fish eagles. Meanwhile, participants on the two-day Falconry Course, will have the chance to learn about the handling of different bird species, training stages, equipment making, housing and feeding, and related areas of health and law. This is followed by free-flying of species including owls and eagles before going on a hawk walk to see them at work in the countryside. The course also includes completion certificate, a pack of notes to take home and a notebook and pen, as well as the chance to watch a display.

Choose from the following options:

  • £36 for a full-day eagle experience

  • £92 for a two-day Falconry course
