On selected days in July and August be entertained by the falconry displays from Birds of Prey Willow Centre in Sevenoaks with two displays a day or watch the thrilling Jousting tournaments (also on selected dates). BSL interpreted Jousting and falconry displays will be on offer for deaf and hard of hearing visitors at certain times, see hevercastle.co.uk for more information

Bring a picnic to enjoy the stunning grounds or choose from a selection of homemade food from the various outlets throughout the gardens.
