Overview

Dive into the wonderful world of falconry surrounded by hundreds of acres of unspoiled Dorset countryside. This falconry experience offers an incredible insight into birds of prey, and is also an opportunity to explore one of the most sensational areas of the country. Begin by meeting a falconry expert for an introductory talk and a tour of the centre - and meet some of the centre's resident birds, each with a unique personality. Learn lots of essential falconry techniques and interesting facts under the wing of a tutor before sitting down to a tasty lunch. Finally, put those newfound skills to the test by flying Harris hawks, falcons, owls and eagles to the glove, watching them elegantly soar through the sky - absolutely priceless and amazing!
