Bird of prey wildlife centre opening times

The Trust is usually open every day except Christmas Day and Boxing Day each year.

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.


We are now open again! 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 visiting each day. Please read this important information about visiting the Trust before you book.

Pre-book your tickets! Tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable.

Did you know?
The Secretary Bird’s name could originate from two theories. The first is that it looks are like the old-fashioned secretaries who carried quill pens behind their ears. Alternatively, it could come from the Arabic ‘saqr-et-tair’. Saqr means ‘hunter’ or ‘hawk’ and tair means ‘flight’ or ‘bird’.
