  • We had a fantastic morning with our Falconer, Katie. Wonderful experience to get so close to the birds and see them fly. Katie was very knowledgeable and friendly and her passion for the birds was ver...  read more »
  • This is the second time we have been to Doddington Place to be a Falconer for the day, and as with the last time, it didn't disappoint. The Falconers were very knowledgeable, and eager to demonstrate ...  read more »
  • I bought this as a present for my husband for Christmas and we left it a while to get booked in. What a great day we had though! Jam packed, and because we were in such small groups (only 4) we each h...  read more »
  • Falconry full day. AMAZING! Took so many amazing birds out in the beautiful Doddington Estate. Can't pick a favourite all stunning. Staff fantastic and made the day perfect. We had a glorious frosty day with blue skies. From Alfie the Barn owl to Maggie the Vulture to regal Moet the Chilean Eagle and the other truly fascinating birds it was a perfect day.
  • Had a really fantastic day at the Hawking Centre. It was great to see the birds out in the open as well as handling them personally. Great experience!
  • I really loved my first time at The Hawking Centre, so much so, I've been there another ten times since! It's what got me into Falconry and for that I'm very thankful. The centre is well located and the team there are very knowledgeable, they could answer every one of my questions. They've helped me in more ways than one, this review is the least I can do to repay them. The centre has grown a lot since I've been going, I'm very happy to see this. Recommended to anyone who's thinking of booking and you may even have the same reaction as me when I enter the bird shed (mews) for the first time, what are you waiting for? Bradley
  • Had a fantastic day at the Hawking Centre. Katie was our Guide and so knowledgeable. Met so many types of birds, favourite was Darwin, Ruby, Maggie, Nanuk, Jess & Hartley!!! Beautiful day in beautiful grounds. We felt very special. Thank you for a wonderful memorable day. Will definitely be returning. Fantastic Christmas present from my daughters.
  • A wonderful place! We signed up for a 1/2 day and wished we had done the full day. Don't make our mistake. This is one of the best experiences we have ever had. We learned about the birds, we were able to have them perch on our arms while our brilliant falconer, Laura, told us about each of them. They are each individual and unique. Naughty Oscar, splendid Jessie and the most elegant peregrine falcon! Also the garden is lovely, with beautiful blooming azaleas and other spring flowers so one needn't feel sorry not to have spent the day in a garden.
