Hawk Conservancy Trust Reviews
We visited here yesterday on a beautiful sunny Autumn day. We have been before a couple of times, the last time was about 4 years ago. We thought the Hawk Conservancy was a brilliant day out when we'v... more »

Lovely day out, loads and loads of birds of prey to see and the shows are not to be missed! Lovely to see staff clearly passionate about what they do. more »
Fantastic place, will change your opinion of vultures, such character. Displays are superb. Smashing restaurant. All very friendly and informative.
Fantastic to see a variety of birds in flight and in displays. Staff are very informative and good at what they do. Facilities are good. Lovely environment. Restaurant good. Only slight downside is that in between displays there is not so much to do once you've already viewed the birds so would be useful to have them closer together to avoid so much hanging around.
Fantastic day out that will genuinely suit all ages. Birds/aviaries are accessible to all whether on foot or wheels. The flying displays through the day are entertaining and quite spectacular with the birds often flying mere inches above your head!
This was our first visit - we were on holiday - it was highly recommended and we weren't disappointed! We were here all day, and did everything! We saw all 3 displays, which were fantastic! We loved them all, especially Valley of the Eagles...WOW! The enclosures were very good and the staff were great. We ate in the restaurant which was very busy but the staff were very efficient. Great play areas and everywhere was well-maintained. We wish it was closer to home!
One of the best family day's we have had!!! Fabulous demonstrations!!! During one of the shows they have a group of 4 hooded vultures flying side to side over the seating area. You get these large majestic birds skimming your head and actually touching you with their wing tips!!! The staff are so knowledgeable and enthusiastic it's infectious! Especially Ben who was commentating on the first show of the day. He clearly love's his job and boy does it show, but it makes him and all of the staff so enjoyable to listen too. They do different events and shows at different times of the year based on the weather at the time of year best suiting the bird's. So we will be back and can't wait!!! 😃
