GNTFM Our Price Match Promise


There are only so many times that the kids are going to get excited when parents say ''Let's go to the cinema!''. It's time to try something completely different - a trip to Cheshire's premier falconry venue, to meet some magnificent birds of prey up close. Everyone gets the opportunity to handle four different birds of prey, from an eagle owl to a vulture and find out what makes these majestic creatures unique. Once comfortable with the birds, you'll have the chance to fly some of them. You'll also go for a hawk walk, where you'll learn some more about the basics of falconry. There'll be lots of photo opportunities with the birds and you can also catch some of the flying displays that take place throughout the day. Tea and biscuits are included.

In a Nutshell
  • Spend time at a falconry centre meeting some top predators
  • Handle four different species of birds and fly at least three to the glove
  • A fabulous medieval-style thrill for the family to enjoy together
  • Enjoy a hawk walk with your falconer
  • Stay to watch one of the flying displays
Key Info
  • Availability Description
    Approximately four dates each month (both weekday and weekend). As weekends are usually very busy, we recommend booking several weeks in advance, particularly during the busier summer months.
  • Participant Guidelines
    Created exclusively for a group of between four and six people. There is no minimum age, but your group must contain at least one adult (18 or over).
  • Weather
    Cancellation would only occur in extreme weather conditions and in that event, would be re-booked for an alternative date. If in doubt please call the centre to confirm.
  • Duration
    The experience lasts around an hour but you are welcome to spend as long as you like at the venue.
  • Numbers on the Day
    The experience is exclusively shared by your family group of up to six and your falconer.
  • Dress Code
    Dress for the outdoors, with wellingtons or walking boots. Bring a change of clothes if the weather is particularly bad as you spend much of your day outdoors.
  • Other Info
    All our vouchers are fully flexible and can be redeemed against our huge range of experiences. Why not bring along a camera and/or a pair of binoculars if you have them? And it would be a shame not to catch one of the flying displays that take place throughout the day.
