Discovery Days

An alternative day of Discovery suitable for individuals, couples, friends or family groups based at a place of interest and including an exciting activity such as a Falconry Experience, a Lesson in Clay Target Shooting or Paddle Boarding.  Enjoy a mixture of fresh air whilst learning about a historic venue or a new skill.

Falconry Experience

Get up close and personal to some of our most fearsome feathered companions! It is a rare occasion, to catch a glimpse of these elusive predators ... but now you can learn about how these birds operate in the wild from our expert handlers. Not only will you learn about their behaviour, you may even get a chance to handle the animals, before being treated to an awesome professional display, and an opportunity to grab some snapshots of you and your new feathered friend!

Helicopter Pleasure Flight and Concorde Discovery Tour

Find out about the Concorde story in the race to break the sound barrier, the design and build of the world's first supersonic passenger aircraft, what it was like to be a traveller and a crew member on board and the retirement of the Concorde fleet following the devastating crash. Take a helicopter tour around the amazing country side and whats more, once you have landed, enjoy a home-made traditional cream tea. The perfect family day out!

Mapledurham Estate and River Thames Helicopter Tour

Take a VIP helicopter tour up the Thames, meander around the Manor house (see available dates), visit St Margaret's Church and learn about the spectacular turbine & mill. As it is the last working corn mill on the Thames. Away from the distractions of town, business or busy hotels, Mapledurham Estate is an oasis of peace, natural beauty and history. A scrumptious cream tea made from the flour freshly ground at the mill, perfectly completes a once-in-a-lifetime family day out!

Hatfield House Helicopter Discovery Day

As one of the then 'Treasure Houses of England', Hatfield House is by far and away one of the most magnificent stately homes in the UK. Home to the current Lord and Lady Salisbury, this fine Jacobean House was splendidly decorated for entertaining the Royal Court with state rooms rich in paintings, fine furniture and tapestries. With Adventure 001, you can now experience the majesty of this spectacular building, from inside, outside, and above! Take a VIP helicopter flight from the grounds, soaring to new heights, before you take a wander around the house itself.

Clay Shooting Experience with Seasonal Refreshments

Our Shooting Ground is set in a beautiful valley of rolling pastureland interspersed with mature hedge rows, small wooded areas, and stunning far reaching views over the Vale of Aylesbury, an outstanding location to enjoy your experience!

The Clay Pigeon Shooting session will involve being taught the safe handling and use of the shotgun, together with being coached by our professional shooting instructor to shoot various sporting targets. We pride ourselves on our professionalism, friendliness, patience and ability to get those who have never shot before to hit targets, we guarantee you a great day which you will talk about for months.

Wakeboarding - Cable Tow Experience

Originating in Australia and New Zealand, Wakeboarding has become extremely popular and one of the most exciting and thrilling sports on the water! Discover the excitement and exhilaration of wakeboarding with this amazing introductory UK wide experience. If you are looking for a unique thrill then this high speed action water sport is the one for you. Each rider is towed by a cable along the water and if you are feeling brave enough there are floating obstacles, enough to challenge any rider! You will receive expert tuition from an experienced and friendly instructor, teaching you the fundamentals of safety, body position and technique.

Go Karting Experience

The engines are revving, the lights are red, you are kart to kart with your mates waiting for the off, tension ever mounting. Set off at screaming pace around challenging courses, on offer throughout the UK. This Go Karting experience will certainly find out who the best driver really is. Weaving in and out of your competitors, push your go kart as fast as you can and race to victory!

Itineraries vary depending on location, but generally you will arrive at the venue and receive full kart and safety instruction, before being kitted out in race suit, helmet and gloves. Each group goes out onto the track for a quick 5 minutes practice followed by 10 minutes of qualifying races to see who the fastest qualifiers are. The winners will be presented with medals/trophies depending on location.
