The World Owl Centre: Latest News

Update 20.11.21

We are still working hard to find a new site for the World Owl Centre and hope to have news for everyone soon. In the meantime, keep an eye on the news page for fundraisers we are running and details of where and when our Ambassador Owls will be out and about. It will be great to see everyone now that restrictions are lifting.

The World Owl Centre

Site Clearance Starts in 2014

All of the WOT Trustees are very excited about the project which will be without any doubt the best centre of its type in the UK. Visitors will experience a “magical mystery tour” along meandering pathways with the aviaries for the birds being built in between and around the trees that are already on site so there will virtually be a surprise around every corner. The accommodation for the birds will, as closely as possible, mimic the natural environment of the particular species of owl in order to provide them with the best possible environment for their welfare.

It is hoped that the new centre will be fully operational in the Summer of 2018 and that it will provide a full day’s experience for visitors where, as well as seeing the finest collection of owls in the UK, they will be able to browse for “owly gifts” in the shop and rest their feet in the tea room to enjoy quality refreshments whilst gazing out into the owl centre or picnic overlooking the on site lake.

The plan of the site and the aerial photograph will give you some idea of how it is being laid out.
