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 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.

*Except during most of January, Christmas Day and Boxing Day.


Pre-booking your visit is essential (for members and non-members).  To allow for social distancing at the Trust, we must restrict the number of visitors coming to the Trust. Pre-book your tickets now. Tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable.

We know the highlight of your day is our flying displays and although we have had to make modifications to the Trust overall, we’re delighted to offer three flying displays that will take place every day during the following times:

Please add additional time to make your way to the displays to allow for queues to be seated. We’re unable to offer any other activities at this stage, although this is under constant review and we’re hoping to add more to our daily timetable when we are confident this can be done safely and the restrictions allow it. Some areas are closed including the viewing hides.

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.
