Meet Jean Simon, the Castle Falconer, and his hawk Sovereign
Tuesday and Sunday / 10am to 4pm
Discover how Jean cares for and trains his birds of prey, and watch him perform the fascinating skills of falconry, which were important in Tudor life. Learn what a ‘hoodwinked’ or ‘haggard’ bird is, and who is a ‘cadger’ or a ‘boozer’. You’ll find Jean and Sovereign awaiting your presence in the Middle Ward.
