Bird of prey wildlife centre opening times

We are open every day except:

On 29 June, there will be modifications to the timetable: the Trust will close at 5pm, Feathers Restaurant will close at 3.30pm (light refreshments will still be available from the Shepherd’s Hut) and Brilliant Bird Brains will take place at 4.30pm.

We may need to close for the safety of our birds, staff and visitors if the weather is deemed too dangerous to open. There may be occasions where we still open, but modify our timetable based on the weather forecast.

Pre-booking recommended

Pre-booking your visit is advised (for members and non-members) if you would like to guarantee your visit for a chosen date.  Pre-booking is not available for discounted tickets (including Tesco).  It is possible to visit without pre-booking and pay at reception on arrival, subject to spaces being available. If we are fully booked, we will not be able to let you come in.  Based on customer feedback, we have chosen to keep a capacity limit in place to provide a little extra space for all.Pre-book your tickets now (tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable).
