Frequently asked questions

Do you run this experience all year?

Yes! We offer our experiences throughout the year, 7 days a week!

Can we stroke the birds?

Out of respect for our birds and their health and welfare, we do have a "no touching" policy. Guests on experience days will have the chance to have our birds land on their gloved fist, but we do ask that they do not touch or stroke the birds.

Is entry into Groombridge Place included?

No - however it is not needed to be able to be able to participate in your experience, only if you wish to spend the day before or after your experience. Visit www.groombridgeplace.com to see their opening hours. Please be sure to check their opening times if you are wanting to book an experience on a day which they are open.

Is this experience wheelchair accessable?

Our flying arena is on grass, however amendments can be made to allow those with accessability requirements to participate. Please call us to discuss your requirements before booking.

What should I wear?

Dress for the weather! In the wetter months, boots or wellies are advised as the ground can get quite boggy.

I need to reschedule, can I do this?

Yes, amendments to your booking can be made up to 7 days in advance. Within 7 days, a £20 cancellation fee will apply. You will have to call or email us to do this.

Where is the experience?

We are based within the grounds of Groombridge Place, Kent. The postcode is TN3 9QG.

Can we see the birds before or after the experience?

When Groombridge Place is open to the public, we do offer 2 flying demonstrations a day. This will incur an admission fee into the estate. Otherwise, all of our birds are currently kept off-show, so you would only be able to see them during the shows, or on an experience day.

Can I bring somebody to take photographs?

Yes! We allow ONE spectator per participant to come and take photos. So if you have a voucher for two participants, you can bring two spectators. This is to not overcrowd other guests on the experience.

How is my voucher sent?

All of our gift vouchers are sent instantly as an E-Voucher. You can upgrade to have a gift voucher sent in the post for £3.50. This will be sent 1st Class royal mail.
