Frequently asked questions
We do indeed attend outside events and schools often in partnership with RaptorXotics who specialise in educational talks and demonstrations. We tailor each package individually so it’s best to give us a call on 07867927596 to find out more.
Unfortunately lunch is not provided and we advise Full Day Falconry Experience guests to bring a packed lunch as picnic facilities are available within the falconry centre and Holdenby grounds. Alternatively staff can advise guests of a local country pub where reservations can be made for you upon your arrival at the centre.
Our birds will fly in most weather unless its dangerous to do so (High winds, heavy rain) but we understand that, in extreme circumstances you may wish to re-arrange. If this is the case give us a call and we can discuss your options.
For the Half Day Experience and Taster Sessions our minimum age is 10 years and on Full Days and Hunting Days 14 years. A responsible adult must attend any session with participants under the age of 16 – a spectator fee will not apply to this adult.
We do not open daily to the general public and specialise in pre-booked experiences but we do occasionally open up to the general public on select days. These dates are usually during events at Holdenby when we will often provide flying demonstrations. For updates on when these dates are either see www.holdenby.com, see Facebook page or give us a call.
We try to keep group numbers down as much as we can as we feel this helps us achieve a far better session so if you are planning to bring more than 3 spectators then let us know in advance. Spectators are charged at £20 per person.
Yes! We want you to take away as many memories of your time with us as possible. We do however ask that if photographs of our birds are published for anything other than private personal use (i.e. magazines, photo competitions etc.) that you inform us before doing so.
Clothing suitable for outdoor pursuits at the given time of year and sensible footwear for walking are both essential. We will provide all specialist equipment on the day.
All experiences can be purchased as a gift voucher and booked on a date that is
convenient for the recipient (subject to availibility). To book a session
call Mike on 07867927596.
