We had the 2 hour falconry experience and thoroughly enjoyed it. To put it bluntly the constant drizzle and chill tried to disrupt the experience but the teams humour and manner got past that hurdle. Unfortunately because of the weather the birds were not flying...More

Super group if you like birds of prey. Will not be at the Hop Farm much longer as the owners are rubbish. Looking for a new venue, will advise as and when they find one.
