Overview

The Hawk Conservancy Trust is an award winning visitor attraction set in 22 acres of woodland and wildflower meadow, there are over 130 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 displays in one of the three flying arenas, whilst others are part of important breeding or environmental enrichment projects. Every visitor can meet a British bird of prey and there are extra activities during weekends and school holidays. The Hawk Conservancy Trust is a conservation charity with a mission to conserve birds of prey. The Trust has worked in the fields of conservation, education, rehabilitation and research of birds of prey for many years.

We went with our 18 month old son. Who loved the displays, dive bombing owls and vultures. Really lovely ground and great staff. We are proud to be in our 2nd year of membership.

Went with a group of friends and kids and there was so much there, hugely entertaining, great flying displays and immensely educational - but not in a preachy way. The African display was the highlight for us. Will certainly come again.

Have visited regularly now for 3 years with our 2 young kids. Bought a membership after our first visit. 4 or 5 visits every year and each visit is different. We love it and so do the kids. Cannot recommend this place highly enough.
