Daily timetable

Each day, 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. The dates that we will be closed for this work will be Wednesday 5 January to Friday 11 February 2022. Feathers Restaurant and the Trust shop will remain open during this time.

Pre-booking essential

Following the most recent Government lifting of COVID-19 restrictions, we have thoroughly reviewed the measures we have in place at the Hawk Conservancy Trust. Please read this important information about visiting the Trust before you book.

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 along with the following activities:

Please add additional time to make your way to the displays to allow for our team to seat you with adequate distance. 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 restrictions allow.
