Morning: Experience a ‘Bird on the Hand’

Book an activity like no other and get up close and personal with fascinating birds of prey. Learn all about the lords of the air and their place in nature and also gain skills of how to train and communicate with the beautiful birds.

Afternoon: Be a little mischievous

Let the kids run wild at Mini Mischiefs in Market Harborough or Manic Minors Adventure Playground in Lutterworth. These indoor soft play areas are great for a rainy day, a birthday party or maybe just when you need to tire the children out with an afternoon full of fun.
