Falconry - Hawk landing on a gloved hand

Falconry or hawking is a sport which involves the use of trained birds of prey to hunt or pursue game for humans.

It takes a while to become trained to handle birds of prey properly, however you can get the chance to experience what is involved from a falconry experience. There are plenty of birds of prey centres such as the falconry centre in the Cotswolds or the falconry centre in Yorkshire. They will introduce you to the art of falconry. They will let you handle the birds under supervision, and fly them to catch some prey.

Falconry Experience Days

For about £60 for a half day falconry experience, you can learn different methods of holding, walking with and flying a variety of birds of prey.

For about £100 you can have a full day of falconry. This will often going out into the countryside to fly a bird of prey. This is a truly amazing experience.
