Medieval Falconry

14th September 11:00am - 4:00pm

Join us on 11th April for our popular Medieval Falconry Day at The Bishop’s Palace. 

Tony from Raptor Care is an expert in falconry and in training the birds with skills that have been used since Medieval times.  He will bring a selection of his finest falcons and owls to show off their marvellous moves in front of visitors on the South Lawn.

Suitable for all ages, the flying displays will take place twice a day and will show visitors how these magnificent birds would have been used in Medieval times, and by whom.

In between the flying displays, visitors will have the chance to get up close with some of the birds and handle these wonderful creatures, whilst finding out all about them from their handlers.

Displays at approximately 12pm and 3pm (weather permitting).

This event is included in admission to the Palace & Gardens. This is a fundraising event in aid of The Palace Trust Ticket prices: £10.25 adults, £5.10 children, £20.50 Family with 1 adult, £28.50 Family with 2 adults.  Palace Members free.
