Welcome to Kirkleatham Owl Centre


Located in the historic and tranquil village of Kirkleatham in the grounds of the 1709 Kirkleatham Old Hall.


Founded in 1990 Kirkleatham Owl Centre is the UK’s oldest established Owl Centre. Over the years the collection has grown to include a wide range of creatures, ranging from Vultures and Meerkats, to Rabbits and Emus and lots more besides!


We are one of the North East’s leading Wildlife & Environmental education providers, with school visits to us here at the Centre and outreach visits covering a wide area.The Owl Centre is also the area's only specialist Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre treating hundreds of wildlife casualties each year.


We are one of only 3 Biaza (British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums) Members in the North East Of England, and we pride ourselves on being Kirkleatham and indeed Redcar’s most loved attraction, a role we take very seriously and we greatly value the support we receive from our visitors and the people of Redcar.


Flying displays, meet the baby owls, photo opportunities and other on site activities are held every day during the season's school holidays. Some activities may require advance booking, please telephone for further information. We are open all school holidays every day from Tuesday to Sunday and all public holidays with the exception of Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Years Day.


We hope you enjoy your visit.      Scroll down or click  for opening hours and admission prices
