The weather’s gone – well, classically British again! But worry not, London lovers – there’s still loads to do this weekend all over our great capital.
Get close and personal to stunning birds of prey at the Royal Air Force Museum’s FREE Feathers and Flight weekend.
Guests at the newly revamped aviation centre will be able to learn all about the beautiful beasts’ favourite food and hunting techniques courtesy of their specialist handlers. There’ll even be regular special flying displays to enjoy for no extra charge.
Fun fact; Birds of prey are an important part of RAF’s image – an eagle has adorned the military branch’s badge since 1923!
Fri 10th & Sat 11th Aug, 12pm – 5pm: Feathers and Flight (flying displays at 1pm and 4pm both days)
Royal Air Force Museum London, Grahame Park Way, NW9 5LL
