A half day experience lasts from around 13:30 until 16:30 (13:00 to 16:00 late autumn). After a small amount of tuition in the handling of raptors, participants head in to a field, where they can experience the thrill of their first Hawk (and usually Owl as well) flying to them and landing gently on their outstretched glove. Then they will take part in flying some falcons, traditionally the birds of kings and nobility, and the fastest creature that has ever lived on this planet.

Some falcons will be flown to lures suspended on kites or balloons (even drones sometimes) many hundreds of feet in the air. Unforgettable experience.

Important information:

Spectators (over 10yrs old) are welcome to come along, take pictures etc. £5 per person for spectators.

  • This is my second time at the falconry in Gloucester. I had such a good time first time on my half day, that I booked again for a friends birthday full day and it was such a good day. My friend loves birds and had such a good time. We got in depth meetings with all the birds and the interactions we had with them were amazing. I would highly recommend this to anyone even if you don’t have a passion for birds, after this experience I can assure you, you will!!

The demonstrations were fantastic & the handlers were so knowledgeable & got everyone involved. Would highly recommend it!
