On this experience you will get the chance to see our Harris Hawk show off his amazing flying skills. From the open lawn, to the wild woodland and pretty flowered gardens, you will have the opportunity to see him soar, stoop, glide, weave and chase!
You will get to see the hawk soar around above you before start to follow you on your walk. As you put your glove up, he will swoop down and land gently, stay just long enough for a quick photo before taking off again into a nearby tree.
Your Falconry Experience
Your qualified falconer will guide you on your tour around the gardens, whilst the birds are never more than a few metres away, above your head. You can call them down to your glove as often as you like.
Your Hawk Walk lasts 90 minutes and you can stroll around the gardens at your own pace, as like all of our experiences, this one is completely private.
When you have covered the gardens and woodland you will find yourself back on the main lawn, where the hawks will show off some of their other skills. You will get to see them hover, catch food and then there is the hunt…
To end your experience you will get the opportunity to see what it would be like if you went hunting with a Harris Hawk. If you are feeling energetic you can be the ‘rabbit’ and have the hawks chase you as you pull our dummy bunny. Or if you would prefer to play the falconer, you can stand from where the ‘rabbit’ is flushed and watch as the birds fly past you at an incredible speed to catch the ‘rabbit’.
