Details

Albion Historical Falconry will be joining us here at Criccieth Castle for a day of Medieval Falconry! The falconers will be on site from 11am until 4pm with a variety of historically accurate birds of prey on display, and welcome the public to visit them for questions and general falconry chatter.

Feel free to ask the falconers should you wish to take a photograph of yourself alongside one of them and their fabulous birds! The falconers will regale young and old alike with tales of falconry exploits from the Medieval era, and take you on a journey back in time to learn all about our favorite Medieval Kings and Queens and the birds the loved and flew.

In addition, there will be two flying displays at 12:30pm and 2:30pm where you will be able to see some of the birds take flight, and watch their magnificent style, whilst the falconers enthrall you with an exhilarating commentary to delve into the world of birds of prey.
