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.
*See our Opening Times for closure dates.
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).
