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

They are one of the North East’s leading Wildlife & Environmental education providers, with school visits to 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.

The centre is one of only three Biaza (British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums) Members in the North East of England, and they pride themselves on being Kirkleatham and Redcar’s most loved attraction.

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.

The centre is 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.
