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 wonderful place. Children will love it. Amazing displays and it seems the birds love it too. Just feel that they are really loved by their trainers.

I took three of my grandchildren on a cold but dry day. There were very few people there as it was a few days before Christmas. We had almost personal attention from the keepers and they were most informative. The children loved the hunt for golden eggs and the flying displays

Have been visiting annually for about 6 years and are never disappointed. Lovely to see familiar faces amongst the birds and the staff (Dolores, Sirius, Sweeney Todd, Madeleine and Cédric). The flying displays are always entertaining and informative and it's obvious the staff are passionate about the birds. Food in Feathers restaurant is excellent, highly rate the very generous ham,egg... More

Enjoyed hold by a Harris Hawk and kids can hold an owl. Also went to owls by moonlight one evening this was less good - needs more material and I... More

i went here on an impromptu date in school time when we both had the day off midweek and it was pretty empty, only 5 others in the park at the time. this meant that we got a more personal display from the vultures and owls as the handlers could stand nearer to us. on top of this the bird... More
