Falconry Experience Information

We attended this experience for a birthday treat and a treat it was! The birds were beautiful and to get up close and fly them was a real privilege. Charlie their handler was knowledgeable and informative and (it was a) truly memorable visit.

Google Review May 2024

WOW what a fantastic place to visit any time of the year but we have just done a lovely falconry experience with the team at Hever and it was phenomenal, the weather was fabulous and the birds played so nicely with us, we got to handle various birds first and then we got to fly them back and forth from various perches as they landed on our arm to collect their food. Cannot recommend this experience enough we had so much fun, the guys were super polite and every time we fired questions at them they handled them beautifully very quick and precise answers and very informative.
