A fantastic day out at our bird of prey visitor attraction

Set within 22-acres of stunning countryside, the Hawk Conservancy Trust is an award-winning visitor attraction which is open almost every day* and offers a full day out for all ages. Arrive early and be sure to see our world-class flying displays throughout the day, and many other activities in between.

Pre-booking recommended

Pre-booking your visit is advised (for members and non-members) if you would like to guarantee your visit for a chosen date.  Based on customer feedback, we have chosen to keep a capacity limit in place to provide a little extra space for all.  It is possible to visit without pre-booking and pay at reception on arrival, subject to spaces being available. If we are fully booked, we will not be able to let you come in.  Pre-book your tickets now (tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable).

Daily timetable
Each day we run a full timetable of activities to suit the young and old alike. The timetable changes through the year so there is always a reason to come back to see something different.
