Overview
Set in the Cumbrian Countryside, our unique setting gives travellers an insight into local species as well and the importance of falconry to English heritage. Discover why Kings of England kept the Falconers so close, and the role falconers played in Medieval Britain. Our experience is personal, with lots of local knowledge about Carlisle and the surrounding Lake District, and families can get up close and personal to our range of birds. It is all set in the outdoors, so great way to get the kids out of the house.
