Victorian Falconry at Boscobel House

Date: 25 – 27th May

Time: 10am-5pm

Gaze skywards in awe as a spectacular collection of birds take flight to soar and swoop above Boscobel House in this display of Victorian Falconry.

The art of falconry became an increasingly popular part of country life in the 19th century. Wealthy landowners would enjoy flying falcons over their estates and catching edible game for the larder with their hawks. Join our Victorian Falconers and listen to nostalgic tales about birds and the adventures of their human companions. Marvel at a stunning collection of birds of prey as they take to the skies in a series of live flying demonstrations set against a traditional rural landscape.

"🏰✨ Dive into the heart of Shrewsbury's Castle Quarter – the epicenter of history and grandeur! 🏰 Home to four of the town's largest historic treasures – Shrewsbury Castle, Library, Prison, and Train Station. 

Did you know Shrewsbury Castle's foundations were laid in 1083 by the 1st Earl of Shrewsbury, Roger de Montgomery? 
Montgomery, a cousin of William the Conqueror, earned this castle and more as a thank-you for his aid during the Norman conquest.

From royal stronghold to a 16th-century transformation, Shrewsbury Castle has quite the story. Now, it stands majestically, housing the Shropshire Regimental Museum. 👑🏰 Ready to step into the pages of history?
