Falconry, once a favourite Victorian sport, will be showcased at the event, titled 'Father’s Day Falconry'.

Drawing on traditions passed through generations, there will be three falconry displays on the days, where a variety of birds will soar above the grand mansion's ruins and its restored parterre gardens.

Fathers will also get a chance to learn what it takes to become a falconer.

Ella Harrison, English Heritage's events manager, said: "If you want to have a quirky day out with dad, look no further than Witley Court & Gardens.

"They’ll be plenty to see and do to keep the whole family entertained."

If your dad also likes a bit of gardening, you will be pleased to hear that the home's infamous rhododendrons will be in full bloom across the estate.

Visitors will also be able to learn about the house's history through an audio trail, or can simply enjoy the peaceful surroundings.

Children will not be left out as they can enjoy both the wilderness and an outdoor play area.

The falconry will be from 10am until 5pm on both days.

Displays are scheduled for 11.30am, 1.30pm, and 3.30pm, weather permitting.

Admission includes the falconry display costs £12.50 for adults, children for £7.50, and family tickets range from £20.00 to £32.50.
