This fascinating Owl Encounter will be a great introduction to the world of falconry!

Whether you are an enthusiast or someone who has never experienced birds of prey, these encounters will give you the chance to handle and fly an owl up close and personal making your encounter truly memorable. Upon arrival your experience will begin with an introduction to one of our visiting falconers who'll provide you with a safety talk. You will then have the wonderful opportunity of handling, touching and flying one of the birds to your gloved hand within the tunnels.

These experiences are suitable for ages 6 and over, but participants under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult. All equipment will be provided for your experience, but please remember to bring some suitable clothing and footwear as the tunnels are cold and the floors are uneven.  

Prices are £20.00 per adult or child (this must be booked in advance online). To book your tickets please click HERE.

PLEASE NOTE: Non-participating guests (up to a strict maximum of 4 people) are welcome at £2.50 per person (to be paid on the door).   

Terms and conditions: We ask that all participants please let us know in advance if there are any medical conditions or disabilities that we may need to be aware of. We will always have client safety in mind during all activities. Please be aware that the tunnels not suitable for wheelchair users and those with claustrophobia should contact us prior to booking. Tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable (unless cancelled by Fort Amherst).
