“A fantastic family experience”


5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 July 2016   


"I found Riverside Falconry through TripAdvisor and booked a family package that included time handling several birds (owls, falcons, hawks) and then a "hawk walk" through the adjacent forest. It was one of the highlights of our British Isles trip! John makes the experience perfect for young children (we had 6 year olds in our group) and adults alike. I highly recommend"!
