Hawk Conservancy Trust

About

The Hawk Conservancy Trust is a full day out for all the family. Get outside and immerse yourself in nature! You will witness some of the most spectacular flying displays in the UK, as well as having the opportunity to meet an owl!

‘Meet the Burrowers’ in the fascinating and immersive aviary where you can come face to face with the Trust’s team of cute and curious Burrowing Owls or even book on to a VIP Encounter to meet them yourself!

Don’t miss the ‘Wings of Africa’ display. See Northern Bald Ibis and Storks fly elegantly alongside owls, vultures and kites; experience the Savannah with the dramatic impact of a bushfire and African rainstorm.

Children can blow off some steam as they explore the park and bird of prey themed playground, and young adventurers can have a go at the children’s activity trail. These are just some of the activities that make up the Hawk Conservancy Trust’s full timetable of daily activities. During school holidays they offer additional daily activities to keep you and the children entertained at the Trust, including pond dipping, tractor rides and Ferret races. 

Bring the family to the Hawk Conservancy Trust for a day in the country; to have fun, to learn, to be inspired and to be amazed. Please check the website www.hawk-conservancy.org for opening times and daily timetables. The site is fully accessible with Feathers Restaurant and the Trust Shop onsite.
