Medieval Falconry at The Bishop’s Palace

02 Apr 2019


If you’re looking for a day out with a difference, then don’t miss The Bishop’s Palace’s Medieval Falconry Day on Saturday 13th April 10am-4pm.

Held on the South Lawn, against the stunning backdrop of the medieval Great Hall, Tony from specialist falconry firm, Raptorcare, will entertain crowds with a day of fantastic flying displays, fascinating information and beautiful birds!Falconry(1)-(1).jpg

The displays are aimed at all ages of visitor and will illustrate how these birds would have been used in Medieval times and why. Marvel at their skill and training as they show off their well-honed moves in front of the audience and in between displays, visitors can have the chance to handle some of the birds.

The 14 acres of Gardens will also be open, with the Family Easter Egg Trail available; and the Dragon’s Lair Play Area is the perfect place to exercise little legs – climb the Dragon’s Wings, explore the Tree Pods, crawl through the Dragon’s belly or pump the water to spill the bucket and send the Dragon to sleep – the choice is yours!

The Bishop’s Table Café and The Hungry Dragon snack bar will also be open, serving a range of drinks, snacks, lunches and hot food.

Included in standard admission. Palace Members and Under 5’s are FREE.
