Voted number 2 out of 746 in Kent as the best places to visit by world travel guide Lonely Planet and Trip Advisor
The Hawking Centre is London, Kent and the South Easts specialist Falconry and Bird of Prey Experience Centre. With two locations to choose from nestled in the heart of Kent and East Sussex on secluded private estates, our Falconry Experiences take place within the formal gardens, woodland and parkland, offering clients an exclusive Falconry Experience with a stunning range of Birds of Prey.
At either of our locations you find yourself in a tranquil natural world of Owls, Hawks, Vultures, Eagles and Falcons all flying to your gloved hand on our half day, full day and five day Falconry experiences and courses.

All experiences are inclusive of refreshments. Lunch is included on the full day falconry experience and five day courses in our tea room or library overlooking the formal lawns.  

All our falconry experiences are run seven days a week for all ages, year round and are a perfect gift. Gift vouchers are valid for 12 months and experiences are run in small groups of 4 participants.
We look forward to welcoming you.
