Hawkstone Park Follies

FolliesThe Follies is a historic woodland with lots to see and explore. There are cliff, crags, caves and plenty of woodland to get lost in. The landscape was restored after years of neglect and reopened in 1993, it’s constantly undergoing maintenance so there’s often something new to see. It’s a great place for a first date as there’s so much more to do than just walk. There’s some great architecture and geology to be seen here. From the Gothic style greenhouse to the Swiss Bridge that crosses a large gulf. Perhaps take a picnic with you so you can make a whole day of your fun at the Follies.

Battlefield Falconry Centre

OwlA special way to spend a date would be to experience a morning of falconry. You could go on a hawk walk where you explore the countryside while you bird follows, occasionally being called back to your glove. It’s a real experience and a great way to impress someone with an interesting first date idea. If you’d rather get up close and personal with a number of birds, look at the bird handling sessions where you’ll meet owls and falcons of all shapes and sizes. Image via left-hand on Flickr.
