Daily timetable

Each day, at the Hawk Conservancy Trust, we run a full timetable of activities to suit everyone. This timetable changes according to the time of year so there is always a reason to come back for you to see something different.

At the beginning of every year we close in order to undertake vital maintenance and development projects. In 2020, the dates that we will be closed for this work will be Tuesday 4 January to Friday 5 February 2021. Feathers Restaurant and the Trust shop will remain open during this time. This year, we will also be closed on Monday 21 and Tuesday 22 December 2020 for our Father Christmas event.

COVID-19

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.

October Half-term

Saturday 24 October – Sunday 1 November

Step into our mystical woodland and enter the amazing world of owls this October half term. With tales of folklore and traditions, spooky decorations and ghoulish goings on, we’ll be celebrating these wonderful night hunters in this special flying display. As part of your day, children can also take part in our FREE Halloween trail and spot pumpkins around the sight to reveal a mystery answer. All included as part of a day visit to us this half term when we’ll also have two other flying displays each day, as well as a Top Trumps activity trail and bird of prey themed playground.
