Falconry in the Gardens at The Bishop’s Palace

Sunday 11th April 10am-4pm

If you’re looking for a day out with a difference, then don’t miss The Bishop’s Palace’s Medieval Falconry Day on Sunday 11th April 10am-4pm.

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

The day is 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, and in between displays, visitors can have the chance to see some of the birds close up.

The 14 acres of Gardens will also be open, with the Family Easter 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 will also be open for takeaway, serving a range of drinks, snacks, lunches and hot food.

Included in standard admission.
