Of all the things I have seen and done in the UK this was definitely one thing I will remember forever. (Even if Mogwai was a little naughty) I really enjoyed meeting Jay and learning about these beautiful birds. they are so graceful and gentle when they land. Mogwai decided to hide in a tree for about 20 minutes but... More

We booked a hawk walk for my birthday. Jay explained how to call Charlie to fly to us (although he usually did the opposite of what he was asked). Charlie was really gentle and we really got to get to know his mischievous personality. Booking again soon.

This was an absolute highlight of our trip!! Jay was helpful during the booking and with directions prior to arriving. Jay and Charlie (the hawk) were so much fun! Charlie was very friendly and enjoyed climbing up our arms and on to our heads once he had finished the food in our hands. He was also pretty adorable when he... More

Jay, thank you for this wonderful experience! You were not only great to deal with during the booking process, but you were a wonderful host and we had a fabulous time feeding and observing Mogwai (I think that's who we had). We had a great day for it too, beautiful weather. It's something that I never even thought about doing,... More

Our visit with Jay and Charlie the hawk will go down as one of the most memorable in ours lives. We took a cab to West of England Falconry from the train station. It's in a very residential/rural area. Once you get trained and outfitted off you go to a pasture to let Charlie do his thing. It was simply... More

My partner and myself were given a Hawk Walk experince as a joint Christmas present from my daughter, who knew of my interest in birds of prey. We turned up at the location a little early, but the falconer wasn't phased by this and we were able to look at some of the other beautiful birds of prey that he... More

Visited on my birthday and really enjoyed the day.Jay was a great tutor and host and I learned how to feed a very friendly Harris Hawk called Mogwai.I would thoroughly recommend the experience.

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
