Enjoy the ultimate hands on experience as you take a stroll with a Georgian Falconer and her hawk through the stunning 1800s landscape, giving you the chance to fly and handle the bird as you learn about the life of a falconer in the 1800s.
Each session has a maximum of 6 participants and will last approximately 1 to 1½ hours.
Before and after your Georgian Hawk Walk you are welcome to explore the rest of the museum with day entry included within the experience.
I had a wonderful time with the hawks, and our guide Becca was marvellous. It was a very rewarding experience, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at Beamish for making these events possible.
Cost: £35 per person.
