What happens on the day?
Falconry has been perfected over centuries, allowing man and bird to hunt together in perfect harmony. Learn this ancient craft at any of 14 locations across the UK; don the gauntlet and stare into those fierce yellow eyes. A knowledgeable guide will show you around the centre and introduce you to a variety of birds, their capabilities and natural history. You’ll have the opportunity to fly some of the birds from your fist in true falconer style, encouraging them to soar, pounce and mantle.

- Is this activity done on a one to one basis with a trainer or is it with a group of people?
- Generally the bird of prey days are held as part of a small group, they are not run on a one to one basis.
