Full Day Medieval Falconry Experience at Hedingham Castle
MINIMUM AGE OF PARTICIPANT: 16 years old and above.
Based at the absolutely stunning location of Hedingham Castle on the Suffolk/Essex border, the Full Day Medieval Falconry experience is a truly special day out. You will learn to fly a variety of our stunning birds including owls, hawks and falcons to your gloved hand before going out as part of a hawk walk – an exhilarating trek around Hedingham Castle’s beautiful grounds whilst flying a Harris hawk.
We also fly some of the smaller birds within the beautifully restored Castle Keep – the perfect background for falconry!
You will get to see how the birds fly in their natural environment as well as learning about how falconers train the birds and what kind of prey the birds would have been taking in medieval times, what sort of species would have been used and why we have had such a special bond with birds of prey over thousands of years.
A tour of the castle keep, lunch, teas and coffees are included in the price.
