Family Falconry Encounter
A really nice Cocktail Making & Spirits Experience located in Knutsford, Cheshire.
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.
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.
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.
The experience lasts around an hour but you are welcome to spend as long as you like at the venue.
The experience is exclusively shared by your family group of up to six and your falconer.
Spectators are not limited and are charged at the current admission rate. (Adults £8.50, concessions £7 and children ( 3-16) £6. Two adults and two children, £27 and two adults and three children £33)
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.
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).
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.
