Delve into the fascinating world of falconry and have a go at this incredible sport yourself with a half day experience for one. Take a rare opportunity to not just meet majestic birds of prey including hawks, owls and falcons, but actually to learn to fly them to the gloved hand. Find out more about this amazing sport and learn the tips and tricks necessary to ensure bird and handler train and enjoy safely, see a falcon fly to the lure and then handle and feed them up close and personal from the glove.
