Medieval falconry at The Bishop's Palace, Wells
If you’re a fan of falconry and mad about the medieval period, then don’t miss The Bishop's Palace’s Medieval Falconry Day on Saturday 9th September from 10am-4pm, at Wells in Somerset.
The Raptor Foundation will be on the South Lawn with their beautiful birds of prey for a day of fantastic flying displays along with entertaining historical facts about these wonderful creatures.
Suitable for all ages, the displays will show the ways in which these skilful birds would have been trained in medieval times, and why.
Marvel at their intelligence as they show off their well-honed moves and, in between displays, visitors will have the chance to handle some of the birds.
For the very youngest of young archaeologists there's the new Dragon’s Lair Play Area! It's the perfect place to give little legs a good spell of exercise – climb the Dragon’s Wings, explore the Tree Pods, crawl through the Dragon’s belly or pump the water to spill the bucket and send the Dragon to sleep – the choice is yours!
And there's also The Bishop’s Table Café on site which is open daily serving new young-archaeologist-friendly menus alongside lunches, cakes and hot drinks to refresh the grown ups too!
All activities are included in standard admission.
Remember that young archaeologists can get half-price admission with their YAC Pass Cards!
