The Crown Club at The Old Government House Hotel is the most stylish and relaxing rendezvous in all of Guernsey - the perfect spot to enjoy the company of friends and colleagues over a few drinks and a light meal. Created from the original 18th century Old Crown Offices it provides an intimate and flexible collection of inviting spaces that are perfect for a wide range of occasions and functions, including a glass-walled wine and whisky-tasting room.
The plush and cosy bar has a very traditional and opulent feel, with red leather banquette seating and a wealth of antique brass fittings. It offers an outstanding selection of premium whiskies and British gins, Champagne, vodkas and cognacs as well as cocktails, beers and fine wines, including signature vintages from our sister wine estate Bouchard Finlayson.
Our one-hour private hawk walks give you the incredible opportunity to fly your very own Harris Hawks under the guidance of your instructor. After you have been introduced to your hawks you’ll set off into the magnificent woodlands to fly your hawks, as they follow you from tree to tree through the woods before swooping down to land on your gloved fist. Your instructor will explain about the hawks’ exceptional eyesight, their speed and agility and how they were trained by the Falconry School themselves.
The minimum age to participate in a hawk walk is 7 years old. Children younger than 7 are welcome to spectate during a Hawk Walk however they would not be able to participate. Junior guests must be a minimum age of 13 years of age to experience an extended hawk walk. We would ask families to refrain from using strollers during their hawk walk as the birds are intimated by their presence. Hawk walks cater for all ages and families taking into account the aforementioned requirements.
For those with a keen interest, the Extended hawk walk allows you to go for a longer walk in the woods, giving more flying time and a greater insight into the fascinating hawks’ world.
