Bird of prey wildlife centre opening times

The Hawk Conservancy Trust is 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. 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 have made some changes to a day at the Trust as we’ve re-opened with a variety of new 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.  You can pre-book your tickets here.

Tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable.

Gymnogenes have very flexible intertarsal leg joints. This means they can move their lower leg forwards, backwards and sideways.
