The Hawk Conservancy Trust is a conservation charity and award winning visitor centre that operates in the fields of conservation, education, rehabilitation and research of birds of prey. Set in 22 acres of woodland and wildflower meadow, there are over 150 birds of prey on view, from the tiny Pygmy Owl to the impressive Steller's Sea Eagles! Many of these birds are involved in the spectacular daily flying demonstrations, whilst others are part of important breeding or environmental enrichment projects. Every visitor can hold a British bird of prey and there are extra activities during weekends and school holidays for the younger visitors.

What a gem of an attraction. Set in lovely grounds, well equipped, nice restaurant, great staff and a wide variety of birds of prey and other birds to see. The flying demonstration was superb.I would certainly recommend a visit.

Another splendid day. We try to visit once or twice a year (coming from North Wales). Each time we come it is apparent how much work goes into maintaining the site for both the birds and the public. The displays are really informative and entertaining. We just have to keep coming back for more. It should be a compulsory experience... More

I take my daughter to HC at least 2-3 times year as she loves it, especially the live displays. The cafe there is excellent and quite cosy. It is such a privilege to have an educational facility like this so close to our home. It isn't that cheap but on a par with all the other 'Day Out' venues, I... More

We've been here a number of times now and it is absolutely brilliant. You really can spend a whole day here and for £14 it's a bargain. There are set shows every 90 minutes or so, with Vulture feeding, Peregrine Falcon, Black Kite, Eagles and Owl flying displays, a Duck race and all sorts of birds you might never of... More

This is a great venue for both young and old. The variety of birds to see was astonishing, the giant 'cages' many are in are so big that many of the birds have tremendous freedom without going out on free flight. For many the explanation about the birds habits is extremely interesting. Many good photos may be taken of the... More

Visited the Hawk Conservancy after years of intending to - and wasn't disappointed in the slightest. Spent the whole day (from 10.20am to 5.15pm) being wowed by the birds, enthusiastic staff and wonderful flying displays. All the staff are friendly and knowledgeable, the restaurant is fairly priced and serves good food, and i was converted to really liking vultures! The... More

250 hawks, vultures, owls and other birds of prey to observe and learn about. The flying displays are varied and interesting. We handled and flew a variety of birds. The cafe offered reasonable food for lunch. A great day out for the family. Birds fly close to the crowd to add some excitement. This is very close to Stonehenge so... More

Visited The Hawk Conservancy for the first time last Friday, and what a great day out it was. First Class Flying Displays but you need to duck every now and again otherwise one of the Birds might take your head off !!! Being a Photographer I came back home with loads of quality shots. Will definitely visit again.

i can honestly say, that was the best experience I've ever had at a wildlife park! Brilliant. The evening started with a lovely Beef Stew, chocolate brownie, and brief talk about the work done by the trust. Then it was out to the woodland arena for the first of two flying displays. Tawny Owls flying millimetres over your head! Then... More
