Get those kids involved in a children’s falconry experience.

In today’s digital age, children are missing out on valuable interaction with nature. As technology continues to dominate their lives, the wonders of the natural world are becoming increasingly distant.

At Bird on the Hand, we understand the importance of reconnecting children with the beauty and serenity of nature. Our bird of prey experiences near London offer a captivating opportunity for children to witness the remarkable bond between man and bird, and to truly appreciate the power and grace of these majestic creatures.

Join us and give your children a priceless gift – the chance to create lasting memories and foster a deep appreciation for the natural world.

When purchasing Chidlren’s Falconry Experiences you get a free spectator to come and supervise, watch and capture those special moments. A spectator does not take part in the handling/flying of the birds but this can be upgraded with extra cost to a full experience voucher when purchasing.

Best day of the Summer holidays for my 6 year old ☺️

My six year old got this as a birthday present from his classmates. He LOVED it! Said it was the best day of the Summer holidays.

Charlotte and Andrew were fantastic- so passionate and informative, in an entertaining and easily digestible way….and the birds they have are very varied and special- lovely to see them flying, landing on our arms and hats!

Great to be able to get up close. My son especially enjoyed the eagle owl and the red kite. We will definitely come back. Thank you!
