Hawk & Owl Centre at Muncaster Castle

The Hawk & Owl Centre within the gardens of Muncaster Castle is open daily Easter to early November and at weekends Nov-Dec & Feb-Easter. The Centre and the inspiring flying displays are included in your ticket.

The Centre comprises the lawned Owl Garden with aviaries and mews, plus the adjacent Old Rose Garden where there is a flying arena. The Centre is home to a diverse range of birds for you to wonder at and enjoy, from massive to minute and bizarre to familiar but all rarely seen up-close.

Entry to the Centre is through the Owl Garden Tearoom where you can pick up drinks and snacks, and a range of bird-and wildlife-oriented giftware.

DOG OWNERS

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. The second flying display is on the flying meadow – there is a doggy seating area for your dog and you to enjoy at this display.

Learn about the birds

You can see our birds in their aviaries in the centre. There are information boards about each one to help you learn more about them but our bird team are on hand to answer any questions you may have.

All of our birds have a role in our flying displays so depending on the time of day, please note that you may find that a number of them are absent from the Centre.

We strongly suggest that you time your visit to see one or more of our sensational bird of prey displays, at weekends in winter, twice daily in the main season. In early July 2023, due to an outbreak of Bird Flu in a poultry flock almost 10Km from Muncaster, we have had to suspend our 4pm “Wild Heron Feed” indefinitely as this encourages wild birds to come into close contact with each other. Instead, we have replaced this by “Falcon at 4” where we will fly a falcon and give a short talk on the amazing wildlife that lives in amd around Muncaster.

DOG OWNERS

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. The second flying display is on the flying meadow – there is a doggy seating area for your dog and you to enjoy at this display.
