Half Day Falconry Experience
The Half Day Falconry Experience is a unique hands-on encounter with the birds of prey at Bolton Castle. You shall join the experienced falconer and spend the morning learning about, looking after and flying beautiful birds of prey across the Yorkshire Dales countryside – an experience to be remembered forever!
This is a very popular experience and a wonderful opportunity to learn the basics of falconry. The experience shall begin with an introduction to the birds of prey from the professional falconer. You shall then be taken out into the grounds of Bolton castle where you shall have plenty of handling time. You shall also have the chance to put on the gauntlet and fly a range of magnificent birds of prey such as owls, hawks and falcons.
Whilst the birds are in flight the falconer takes great pleasure in telling you about each of the birds, how they live in their natural environment, their characters and reasons for their appearance – it is a fascinating glimpse into the world of these magnificent birds.
What’s more, the birds love human interaction so they’ll enjoy the experience just as much as you.
