Description

Located in the heart of Kent on 800 acres of secluded grounds including beautifully manicured gardens, woodlands and parks, the grand Victorian estate is home to the South East’s premier falconry and bird of prey specialist, The Hawking Centre. Established in 1998, the centre was founded by television presenter and falconer, Leigh Holmes and his wife, Jo, with the vision to share their passion of training and flying raptors and offering unforgettable falconry experiences. Conservation was also a major underpinning of their work, helping to save the world’s vultures from extinction. The couple and their birds have made appearances on BBC, ITV, C4, C5 and MTV.

Immerse in an unforgettable experience and gain insight into the world of the lords of the sky. Experience the adrenaline rush of handling, flying and feeling the steel-like grip of owls, hawks, a vulture and an eagle. Learn the skill of falconry as you fly a team of birds of prey on to your gloved hand through the picturesque formal gardens and woodlands of the estate.

Following a light lunch in the bar of Eastwell Manor, continue the thrill with an archery session and encounter the power and precision of a bow and an arrow. Armed with a recurve bow and a quiver full of arrows, take aim at a range of targets in the estate parkland.

A fun and exhilarating experience for bird lovers and anyone with a passion for raptors. This promises to be an unforgettable experience, up close and personal with some of nature’s most magnificent birds of prey.
