The Ravenmaster: A Talk by Christopher Skaife

  • Hillsborough Castle The Square, Hillsborough BT26 6AG (map)

Admission: £15 / £13 concession | BOOK HERE

For centuries the Tower of London has been home to a group of famous avian residents: the ravens. Each year they are seen by millions of visitors and have become as integral a part of the Tower as its ancient stones. Yeoman Warder Christopher Skaife is the current Ravenmaster at the Tower of London and in his fascinating new book, he describes the ravens’ formidable intelligence, their idiosyncrasies, and their occasionally wicked sense of humour. Over the years in which he has cared for the physical and mental well-being of these remarkable birds, Christopher Skaife has come to know them like no one else. His book is an intimate behind-the-scenes account of life with the ravens of the Tower.
