World Owl Centre™

The World Owl Centre™ within the gardens of Muncaster Castle is open every day (except Christmas Eve and Christmas Day) and entry is included in your Gardens ticket. Large and small, fierce and friendly, beautiful and strange, owls are wonders of wildlife. The centre is home to a diverse range of owls for you to wonder at and enjoy, from massive to minute and bizarre to familiar, including British owls known to us all yet rarely seen up-close.  

Don't miss 'Meet the Birds', daily in the season at 2.30pm, to find out more about these fascinating creatures.
 
Make sure you are around for the daily Wild Heron Feed at 4pm and find out about the origins of this daily wildlife spectacle.
 
Currently Muncaster is seeking a new partner organisation to operate the Centre.
Our aim is to have an owl centre at Muncaster which works in the best interests of the owls and our visitors as well as helping to keep Muncaster a vibrant and popular tourist attraction. The centre will continue to play an important role in owl conservation and work as an integral part of the wider Muncaster Estate.
