Welcome to The Kite Society web pages.

This site is intended to provide a comprehensive reference source to information about kites and kite flying so finding your local kite group, kite stockist or the rules that govern kite flying can be found here.  Follow the links and explore the different aspects of kite flying in Great Britain.  All information is as up to date as we can manage but obviously some details change over time and we cannot be responsible for this.
