Bird of prey wildlife centre opening times

The Hawk Conservancy Trust is currently closed until Wednesday 2 December due to new restrictions imposed by the government.  You can continue to pre-book tickets for after this period.

The Trust is usually open every day except Christmas Day and Boxing Day each year. This year, we will also be closed on Monday 21 and Tuesday 22 December for our Father Christmas event.

At the beginning of every year we close in order to undertake vital maintenance and development projects. In 2021, the dates that we will be closed for this work will be Tuesday 5 January 2021 and we will re-open in February. Feathers Restaurant and the Trust shop will remain open during this time.


We are currently closed due to new national restrictions imposed by the government.

We have made some changes to a day at the Trust as we have a variety of measures in place as a result of COVID-19. We’re very confident that you can still have the usual uplifting day with us though. Please work together with us to help everyone have a great day with our birds and stay safe and healthy.

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 here. Tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable.
