A conservation facility with flying demonstrations and feeding sessions conducted every day, the Hawk Conservancy Trust gets visitors up close and personal with a feathered array of 150 birds of prey. The centre is spread-eagled across 22 acres of beautiful woodland and wildflower meadows, and houses birds from the minute pygmy owl to the princely Steller's sea eagle and the improbably proportioned great bustard. Hides in the meadows offer the opportunity to watch birds going about their daily business, while human habitats come in the form of a coffee and snack shop and a gift shop.
Two adults or a family of two adults and two children can enjoy all-day entry to the conservancy. Instead of a fly-by visit guests should set aside ample time, as events take place throughout the day. Daily sessions of heron and red kite feeding can be watched from the hides, and up to three flying demonstrations will see birds including eagles, owls and hawks swooping through the sky. There are also allocated slots for children to hold a bird of prey themselves, and adults can try their hand at flying a Harris’s hawk.

My visit was absolutely fabulous. 5+hours spent there easily, and not bored at all. Displays excellent, and each and every staff member/volunteer are extremely nice and pleasant, through and through… Gift shop imaginative and with something for everyone. Really can't fault this wonderful place. Kids love it too. It is educational also - all there are experts in their field. Every bird has a wonderful life and participate[s] happily in the varied and entertaining displays… 10/10. I would fault if I could, but I honestly feel this is just the most wonderful place to visit. I just have to visit there again soon to do it all again!

A primary objective of conservation is what makes this place great. They truly have a passion that you don't see in many places that feature animal exhibits. Day starts with vulture feeding and is enough interesting things are going on to fill your day.
