Online "Live" Falconry Experience

OPEN TO ALL AGES

Enjoy the outdoors from your home and join us in flying our beautiful birds of prey online via live video. A brand new experience for 2020, we wanted to offer all of our wonderful customers the opportunity to join us for a 30 minute “Live” Falconry experience at our centre and around the beautiful, private fields within the Lee Valley Park.

Once you have bought this experience, simply phone or email us to book in your live time slot! These experience start from 12pm and will be run until 5pm every day (7 days a week). You will need access to one of these video platforms: Skype, Zoom, Whatsapp Video or Facebook Video Call.

During the experience, we will fly a variety of birds of prey for you and our falconers will be on hand to answer any questions you may have throughout your session. This is a one-to-one experience so it will just be you, your family and whoever else is with you at the time who will be booked onto the time slot so this is a great way to get a personal experience during these times of isolation. If you have a favourite bird of prey, please let us know when booking your time slot in and we can make sure we fly that particular bird of prey for you if we can.

We’re really excited to offer such a personal, educational falconry experience for you all and we look forward to welcoming you to our centre online…..a very modern way to enjoy falconry!
