*For anyone panning a visit between now and the end of Feb be aware that all experiences are suspended due to the bird flu outbreak.* After arriving there today for our experience we were greeted with a sign saying the centre was closed due to bird flu. After a few calls and no answer the owner arrived asking if we... More

Lavenham F, Owner at Lavenham Falconry, responded to this review

Unfortunately we are closed to the public until the 28 th Feb as advised due to the bird flu in the UK. The bird flu can be carried to the footwear of visitors and the birds welfare and safety are paramount. We had contacted everyone regarding this but as explained to the customer she was obviously missed and not contacted,... More

We had a whole day of Falconry and loved it. Great selection of birds, far more than we expected and lots of time with each one. Steve and Clare were really knowledgeable and we learnt lots. The included lunch at Corncraft tea room was fab. All in all a great day. Thanks Steve.

The falconry experience was amazing. Steve taught us about the Harris Hawk, he is very knowledgable and really enhanced our experience. We rode out to the beautiful local countryside and flew Sybil the hawk to hunt some small game for the day. She was absolutely breathtaking to fly. It was amazing to see her in action. It was a one... More

Loved every minute. Got to handle, and watch fly, some magnificent birds, my absolute favourites being the owls. Beautiful birds, well looked after, and all seemed really happy being handled. Lovely friendly and knowledgeable staff. Highly recommended day out and i can't wait to go back to meet more.

Thank Shaz R
