My Wife booked the Hawk Walk for my birthday and originally she'd selected the last weekend in March. Unfortunately, the weather meant that we needed to reschedule, and we eventually visited in May (9th). The location is somewhat isolated, and there are no signs (other than when you arrive) but our GPS (which can be temperamental) took us right to... More

I convinced my London friends to visit the Falconry during my recent visit as we were spending a night in Bath. They appeased me as I learned afterwards that they initially thought I was "madder than box of frogs" to want to do this. And guess what - they had just as much fun as I did! 100 pounds got... More

Took First Great Western 0830 train from Paddington to Bath Spa. Smooth comfortable 1.5 hr journey £70 return. Train has battery charging points and wifi (only at table seats). On arrival in Bath went straight to the Roman Bath and Pump Room Museum which is just 5 min walk from the station. Very good and good value for £12. Immediately... More

Our family of four did a Hawk Walk with Jay and Mogwai in early April, and it was definitely a highlight of our vacation! The weather and scenery were beautiful, and Jay was a great educator and host. And Mogwai was very good to us! We took a cab from Bath city centre there, but discovered a biking/walking trail on...

We booked with Jay the Falconer about 6 weeks before traveling. The owner Jay was very responsive and accommodating. We celebrated a very special birthday with my family which includes two teens. The Harris Falocn was majestic and beautiful to watch and feed. My 14 year old daughter quickly got over being squeamish about Charlie the falcon's diet and embraced... More

This was a last minute find and booking (less than 24 hrs), but Jay was very willing to accommodate. He is the first falconer I've found (in searching the U.S. and Europe) that is willing to let you handle the birds. It's amazing to watching a falconry display, but it's mesmerizing to be a part of it. Many thanks to... More

This was a birthday pressie from my girlfriend, and I would recommend it to everyone. I was a bit nervous about the day, but no need to be. Mogwai was great, if a little bit mischievous when he flew off after crows for 20 minutes, but such a lovely bird that felt right at home with us, as long as... More

We found this on the internet while searching for things to do in Bath. It was a great find! You can tell Jay loves his birds. He was so very gentle with Charlie the Harris Hawk. Our son has a love for birds so booking this was a must. Jay and Charlie took us on a short 10 min walk.... More

My daughter and I were totally enthralled with Charlie's antics in the field and enjoyed every minute of the experience. The only challenge we faced was getting a taxi driver who knew where to take us, but we got there in the end, and it was totally worth it! Thanks Jay :)
