Attraction Information

What’s more magical than coming face-to-face with a wild animal? The Kent Owl Academy has a huge family of owls and birds of prey - from eagles to falcons - just waiting to meet you.

Education is at the heart of what they do with school visits, experience days and Brownie visits. The professional and highly accredited team make sure to share their knowledge and greet every single visitor.

Wildlife awareness is essential so give your kids the opportunity to learn while tapping into all their Harry Potter fantasies. And if they really fall in love the academy has a mini owl adoption programme so they can receive letters from their newfound feathered friends. For visitors from 1 to 100, this would be an absolute hoot!
