It was introduced to Europe around the 11th century AD by the Arabs.

Today, falconry is still practised for sport and for the conservation of wildlife. It is a fascinating and exciting hobby.

Vintage Plane Flying

Vintage Plane Flying

Learning to fly a vintage plane is a once in a lifetime experience and something that everyone should experience. If you’re planning a trip to the United Kingdom, one way you can create some great memories is by taking a flight in a vintage plane. These planes are typically older than World War II and offer a unique experience for aviation enthusiasts.

The Spitfire is one of the most iconic planes of all time. It was an all-time flying speed champion, being the first fighter in history to reach 400 miles per hour, and it went on to become the most produced British aircraft ever made with over 20,000 produced.

Today, vintage planes are still flying in the UK for sightseeing trips and even charity flights. These planes offer the best way to take in beautiful sights such as the Lake District, Snowdonia, and Dartmoor National Park. The UK is a diverse country, with different landscapes and climates meaning that you can find a variety of flying conditions throughout the year. From the smooth climate of the south to the unpredictable winds in the north, there’s a lot of variety to be found. So, if you’re hoping to get airborne, a vintage plane is a wonderful way to do it!

Walking

The UK’s diverse geography means it’s blessed with a huge range of natural habitats, so it’s no surprise that it has over 2,500 miles of coastline and extensive mountain ranges. These habitats provide a home to thousands of different species of wildlife and plants – the best way to experience them is to get out there in nature. The UK is a great country for those who love nature and outdoor activities, with a wealth of scenic landscapes, hidden beaches, peaceful woodland, and rugged mountains. Not to mention the plethora of urban green spaces that provide a nice break from the hustle and bustle of city life.
