Birthday celebrations at the Falconry

On Saturday 16 July a festival celebration will be held at Chester Cathedral Falconry and Nature Gardens.

The celebration will include a bouncy castle, face painting, extensive reptile shows, coconut shy, a penalty shootout and more in addition to the centre’s beloved 13 birds of prey, including vultures, owls and an eagle, and educational nature gardens.

In the past year the falconry centre has welcomed nearly 7,000 visitors and has proven to be one of Chester’s hidden gems rising on TripAdvisor to number 7 of 84 things to do in Chester.

Within its first year the Falconry and Nature Gardens has seen many additions to the centre including Madagascan hissing cockroaches, giant African land snails, a bearded dragon and a corn snake. Bird and bat boxes have been added to the nature gardens along with a virtual bee hive and children’s play area.
