The Cathedrals gardens offer a tranquil space for relaxation, and now they also play host to one of the most amazing aerial displays. Children can watch on in awe as expert falconers educate the audience, teaching them about all about the life, behaviour and habitats of these impressive birds of prey. Owls, falcons, hawks and one incredibly mischievous vulture called Tinks, call the falconry home.
This family friendly attraction also offers nature trails and an opportunity for children to also learn all about reptiles, insects and more!! There is also a small selection of preschool toys in the grounds.
If you would like to get hands on with the birds yourselves, then the cathedral Falconry experience allows children to handle a golden eagle, fly hawks and meet the owls, making for a truly memorable experience. There’s also the fly a hawk experience and the owl encounter.
So when looking for things to do with children in Chester, an exciting experience awaits you at Chester Cathedral Falconry And Nature Gardens.
