The Lightwater Valley Falconry is ideal for bird fans
If you or someone you know is interested in birds, the Lightwater Valley Falconry has the perfect package for you. As well as showcasing beautiful birds of prey every day, the Falconry offers unique opportunities for guests to handle and fly their magnificent birds on their family days out in Yorkshire at Lightwater Valley. What better gift to give someone who loves animals than the chance to experience these fantastic creatures up close?
The packages available for your Yorkshire days out at the Lightwater Falconry start at one-hour owl experiences, but you can choose from a variety of other experiences including a full day falconry course. On this course, you will see and learn everything there is to know about the beautiful creatures who live in the Falconry. Combine this with the other incredible attractions in Yorkshire available in The Valley – including Europe’s longest roller coaster, The Ultimate – and there you have it: the perfect exciting day out!
One of the fascinating activities provided by the Lightwater Falconry is a Hawk Walk. For a family day out Yorkshire with a difference, this one’s a winner! You’ll start the day by meeting one of our falconers at the Centre – along with your feathered companion – before having a brief on the equipment and handling of the bird. You’ll then venture out into the countryside with your bird, stopping to take photographs as you go. You won’t find any other attractions in Yorkshire like it.
If you’re unable to attend a family day out Yorkshire at our theme park but are still interested in the creatures at the Falconry, you even have the option to sponsor one of our birds. Sponsorship gift packs are available from just £20.00 and by buying one, you will be helping the animals out by providing them with food, accommodation, veterinary care and special equipment. This doesn’t just go for the resident birds at The Falconry but for any wild injured birds the team at The Falconry might need to care for.
As well as sponsorship and day courses, the Lightwater Falconry offers amazing owl experiences. This entails coming for Yorkshire days out at the park and getting to handle, learn about and even fly the beautiful barn owls who live at the Falconry to your gloved hand. It’s a family day out Yorkshire with a difference – especially if your kids are lovers of animals.
All the experiences on offer at the Lightwater Falconry are: hawk walks, owl experiences, full and half day falconry courses, barn owl ring bearing, camera clubs, school visits and clubs and association visits. These unforgettable activities on offer are perfect for family days out in Yorkshire, and that’s without even getting to the rest of the amazing rides and attractions at Lightwater Valley, including Jurassic Adventure Golf and the UK’s largest Angry Birds Activity Park. It really is one of the best attractions in Yorkshire there’s ever been!
