Booking information for your visit

We are so pleased to be able to re-open our doors, thank you for sticking with us! The Trust has not been the same without our visitors and our team, both human and avian, are really looking forward to seeing you all again. We’re disappointed that we won’t be able to welcome as many of you as we would normally do at this time of year, however, restricting the number of people is necessary to do our bit to keep our members, visitors, staff, volunteers and animals as safe and healthy as we can.

Pre-booking is essential all visitors (including members). Tickets cannot be refunded or moved to a different date.

There are two really important things that we would like to happen during your visit:

We need your help to achieve this. Inevitably, we have made some changes to a day at the Trust but we’re very confident you can have the usual uplifting day with us. Please work together with us to help everyone have a great day with our birds and stay safe and healthy.

You are welcome to bring a picnic, we have a large green space just outside the Trust for picnickers, unfortunately we don’t have any chairs or tables, so feel free to bring your own or a blanket.

Please help us

The lack of income from being closed and now having to limit daily visitor numbers is severely impacting our ability to carry out our conservation work, please help us continue our mission – the conservation of birds of prey. We have made strides with this in the past and it is frightening to think we won’t be able to continue to do the same for the future. Please help us by donating to our Recovery Action Fund.

The smallest bird of prey found in the UK is the Merlin.
