Period Victorian dog and hawk demonstrations.
- Booking not needed
- Free event (admission applies)
Visit the Victorian Hawk House where a variety of hawks, owls and falcons can be seen at roost, chat to the period-costumed falconers and meet Bella the working dog. Every display is different and some require help from lucky hand-picked volunteers.
Please note that flying displays are weather dependent, if rain prevents flying an interactive talk will be held instead.

What is Gift Aid?
Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points. Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:
- Gift Aid Admission or
- Standard admission
If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you the Gift Aid Admission prices. But it's entirely up to you which ticket you choose. If you want the Standard Admission instead, just let us know when you come to pay.
Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid* — an extra 25 per cent — potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.
An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below: Payment of the additional percentage donation is entirely voluntary, so if you prefer to pay the standard admission please advise our reception staff at the till point.
|Amount paid by visitor||£11.00||£10.00|
|Tax refund from Government*||£2.75||£0.00|
|Total received by the National Trust||£13.75||£10.00|
*Gift Aid donations must be supported by a valid Gift Aid declaration and a Gift Aid declaration can only cover donations made by an individual for him/herself or for him/herself and members of his/her family.
Discounts available with a valid West Somerset Railway ticket purchased on the same day as admission to the site.
Car park charge of £4.50 per vehicle per day, free for National Trust members.
