A most enjoyable 2 hour experience, with everyone in the group being included in the flying and feeding of one of the hawks. We also handled 3 different types of owl. The handlers were very informative and knowledgeable. The whole experience was very friendly and relaxed. Thanks for a lovely morning. We will definitely recommend.

I bought my 11 year old son and myself a groupon for a hawk handling experience. It was a wonderful experience and would happily pay full price next time. Cant sing their praises loud enough!!!

My fiancée and I have not been able to stop talking about our time at the Battlefield Falconry Centre. It was a first class experience, we walked through the woods and enjoyed the interaction with the hawk. I learnt quite a bit too, very friendly guides with a passion for what they do.

Was given this as a groupon for two and had a fantastic time. We got to fly two hawks which was an incredible experience. Would definitely recommend trying this.

I booked a visit for a birthday treat. We were part of a small group that went for a walk and flew a pair of hawks, I can't remember the correct term for a pair but we were told. Then we met a couple of owls then fed some gorgeous owlets. Everyone was very friendly and more than happy to... More

This was a long time dream to try falconry. We booked a 2 hour 'taster' trip to the falconry centre.

We went on a hawk walk (using a harris hawk) and also got to handle and discuss owls. The... More
