The Hawk & Owl Centre within the gardens of Muncaster Castle is open daily mid-Feb to Dec 23rd inclusive, a memorable part of a great family day out in Cumbria.
It comprises the Centre itself and its bird collection, together with sensational bird of prey flying displays twice daily in the main season plus wild heron feed, all of which are included in your Gardens ticket, a great value day out with the kids or for groups.
It also provides an umbrella organisation for our wider Conservation Matters projects both right at home here in the Castle’s gardens and out on the estate as well as in the wider world in association with our conservation partners.
The Hawk & Owl Centre is run in association with the internationally-acclaimed Hawk Conservancy Trust and through them we partner birdlife conservation projects worldwide.
The centre offers more opportunities to get up-close and personal with some of our birds on a Hawk Walk, available most afternoons. Places are limited to a select few so if you’re in the Lake District or Cumbria on holiday, we recommend booking ahead to avoid disappointment.
PLEASE NOTE that no dogs are allowed in the Hawk & Owl Centre which includes the Old Rose Garden arena (assistance dog handlers – please contact us for advice) but are welcome in the Owl Garden Tearoom, at the entrance to the Centre. Dogs and their owners may watch the bird displays on the Meadow from the designated viewing area. Dogs are very welcome elsewhere in the gardens including the wild heron feed from the Cannon Bank but must be kept on a lead.
