Your child (minimum age 5 years, please) will enjoy a thirty to forty-five minute handling experience during which they will meet all of our hawks and owls and hold one of them, finishing up with a small flying display. Please note that children under sixteen must be accompanied by an adult. (One accompanying adult is included as a free guest, additional adults may attend as a spectator for £10).

Parents are welcome to photograph the experience.

Though we will make every effort to allow your child to hold the bird of their choosing, the final decision will be at the falconer’s discretion.
