Falconry at Whitby Abbey

Falconry at Whitby Abbey

Businesses across the Yorkshire Coast are getting ready to reopen and welcome you back. Please check the individual website for reopening dates, opening times and booking details.

We recommend you follow current public health advice and maintain social distancing.


English falconry is a centuries old pursuit traditionally practices throughout history by the noble and titled. Hawks were kept at castles, country houses and even abbeys to provide sport and supply game for the larder. Our short falconry presentations will reveal some of those ancient traditions and introduce you to a few of the most popular hunting birds flown by our ancestors.
