Wonderful to revisit this falconry, I never tire of hearing the falconers describe the birds and their habits. Excellent displays of the peregrine (Took), golden eagle and vultures.

In a 10 day trip of England, this was the most memorable experience. We booked a First Flight in advance, and somehow it ended up that it was just the two of us. I can't put into words how cool it was to handle raptors....More

We traveled throughout the Cotswolds and visited many attractions. The falconry center was absolutely the best thing we did on our trip. We spent hours watching the birds fly, and I would have spent another day there if could have. The birds fly fairly often,...More

We had a lovely day at the Falconry Centre - catching both the 11:30am and the 3pm displays. It’s great value (£25 for a family ticket) and the tickets allow you to come and go all day - meaning we could head over to the...More

Sorry no dogs allowed in to the falconry centre. However, the Arboretum, Garden Centre and Café all on the same site here at Batsford are very dog friendly.
