  • Visited from Devon for the first time yesterday after hearing many good things from friends. Wow… absolutely did not disappoint. You can tell the staff care so much about the birds. They were left to fly-freely during their flying slots and were encouraged to fly far and high to explore the local area. It is so healthy to see falconers having a trusting relationship with their birds. The flying displays were just incredible and some wild red kites and buzzards even got involved too (including Ian!). It was all natural as there were purpose build areas for flying, big aviaries and very close up performances (sometimes a little too close with the vultures…!!) the music made the atmosphere so special and even comical at times. The barn owls flying in the woodland was just so beautiful and I cannot wait to go back there. Food was amazing, staff were so knowledgeable and had much time for questions from the public. Such a wonderful place and you can tell the staff love what they do. Something for everyone there and incredible value. Thank you Hawk Conservancy, I will be back!
  • A wonderful day out for the family. The trust is not a large place, but that only adds to the experience. All of the staff are friendly and helpful. There were 3 displays with a number of different birds on show. All of the information placards were informative and good for the children to read themselves. The cafe is good serving freshly cooked food. I’d highly recommend this to anyone, especially if you have a love of wildlife.
  • I went there as it was hired for a private party in the evening so we weren't there for any of the falconry displays, but we did have a opportunity to look at the majestic birds. They are impressive the enclosures were large and stimulating and the birds and owls were great looking, the sheen on their coats of feathers were shimmery. I would imagine that during the day they would be more impressive especially when the falconry arena is open for use by them. I would recommend going
  • Brilliant place to visit. Excellent displays with very informed and entertaining commentary. A truly wonderful experience. Staff were fantastic around the Birds. The only negative on the day was the Coffee offering in the Restaurant. The Cappuccino was tasteless, weak and can only be described as warm Milk with a dusting of Chocolate. The filter Coffee was even worse. The taste was a mix of swamp water and the inside of an old Thermos Flask. It was beyond palatable. All that said, well worth a visit but taking your own beverage is recommended.........
  • What a fantastic attraction to visit, just outside Andover. Easily accessible, and well laid out. You will be greeted by a friendly and knowledgeable staff whose professionalism is evident from the start of your visit. The flying displays are spectacular, and a visual delight. Don't forget to pack your camera. I will be back.
