If you’re looking for a day out with a difference, don’t miss The Bishop’s Palace’s Medieval Falconry Day on Saturday 16th September (site open 9.30am-5.30pm).

Held on the South Lawn, against the stunning backdrop of the medieval Palace’s Great Hall, Tony from specialist falconry firm, Raptorcare, will entertain crowds with a day of fantastic flying displays, fascinating information and beautiful birds!

Displays will take place at 12pm and 3pm.

Aimed at visitors of all ages, displays 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, Tony can be found at his medieval tent where he can answer all your burning questions.

The 14 acres of gardens will also be open, 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 will also be open, serving a range of drinks and snacks.

Please note: Dogs are welcome at the medieval falconry, however, they must be kept on a short lead at all times. With the exception of assistance dogs, dogs are not allowed inside the Palace building or chapel.

Admission: This event is included with any standard admission.  Pay once and visit all year: All full price Bishop’s Palace Admission Tickets include access to the Bishop’s Palace and Gardens for 12 months (excluding some special events).
