How can I become a falconer or learn more about the sport?

The Falconry Heritage Trust is primarily concerned with protecting cultural heritage for future generations. However, in the UK there are a number of clubs that can give you more information about the modern sport of falconry and, if appropriate, guide you along the route to becoming a falconer. Visit the Hawk Board and Campaign for Falconry website at for a list of UK falconry clubs and further information about the sport including guidelines on keeping birds of prey. Most other countries where falconry is practiced have their own falconry organisations and legislation relating to the sport.

About Us

The FHT aims to establish a portal for the world's falconers and other interested parties to access aspects of the sport's rich heritage by linking existing physical archives, including international private and public collections, through the medium of an electronic archive. This archive will feature falconry furniture, works of art, books, correspondence from leading falconers and film and photographic material for the education and interest of falconer and scholar alike. We hope that, whatever your background or interest in our sport, you may find something of value through our archive to deepen your knowledge, understanding and passion for falconry and will help us, through your support, to preserve this precious cultural heritage for future generations.
