Frequently asked questions
We do indeed attend schools and outside events via our sister company RaptorXotics who specialize in this field. Why not check out the website and send an email with your requirements: www.raptorxotics.co.uk
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 all of our experiences the minimum age is 12 years. A responsible adult must attend any session with participants under the age of 16 (spectator fee applies)
During school holidays we offer shorter family group sessions of an hour and a half for those wishing to bring young children along to join in. These spaces are limited but please email for availability and costing.
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.
For those wishing to book in their voucher experience with us we run these days on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
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 2 spectators then let us know in advance. Spectators are charged as per the rates on each experience page here.
Remember also that no children are allowed as spectators on these days (please enquire if you wish to bring a child over 12 years)
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 within 12 months of purchase. To book a session
