Warwick Castle is offering guests the chance to get up close to some of its birds of prey.

The experience will be available to those who book stays in one of the self-contained lodges between April 12 and May 16 by March 31.

Knight’s Village guests will get to meet the Castle’s birds of prey, alongside an expert handler, to learn more about them including Ernie the Eagle Owl, Barty the Bearded Vulture and Wolf the Harris Hawk - and hear how feathered residents served the Castle in years gone by.

Guests will be able to enjoy this in the safety of their household-only bubble.

Currently, every Knight’s Village stay includes one day’s entry to the Castle.

As the Castle reopens its outdoor attractions on April 12, it will also celebrate the arrival of Zog, the dragon, and his Quest for the Golden Star.

Based on the best-selling books by author Julia Donaldson and illustrator Axel Scheffler, the trail features five fun lessons from Madame Dragon’s school to enthrall children as they try out awesome roars, capture a princess and soar high without their feet ever leaving the ground.

Collecting a stamp for each completed task, the final challenge sees children join Sir Gadabout’s school for ambitious knights and to collect their very own golden star, before they head off to meet Zog himself for a photo.
