In Great Britain, falconry went beyond being a sport of royalty or being practised as a necessity; instead its popularity became what we would now call a craze or fad, and became a status symbol in medieval society.
This experience offers the chance to participate in the most ancient field sport:
You will be given the opportunity to handle the birds and find out more about the birds of prey. This involves watching a short display and sending one off for a flight and returning back to land on your arm.
