London Falconry Experiences
Woodland Hawking Experience
London Falconry and Hawking

A special opportunity to take a private experience with Extraordinary London’s falconer, this experience takes place in the woodlands of a delightful country hotel estate in the Hertfordshire countryside, within 30 minutes of central London.  

 

Upon arrival you will be met and introduced to a Harris Hawk. Our falconer will talk through how these unique birds work as a team to hunt prey after which you will proceed to walk through the woods with the hawk following through the trees and returning to your glove in spectacular style.

The next part of the experience is a chance to get hands on with a falcon. You will be introduced to the bird and learn about the history of falcons. An opportunity to take pictures with the falcon on your fist. The falcon will then be flown to the lure in a breathtaking display that will live long in your memory!
