    Lego Land, Windsor

    All day

    Lego Land, Windsor-We’re ready to play!

    25th February 2021:

    Following this week’s Government update, we are excited to tell you that the Park will reopen on Monday 12th April 2021! Unfortunately, in line with Government guidance, our Hotels will remain closed at this stage.

    The vast majority of our outdoor rides and attractions will be open and our character meet and greets will be going ahead. Due to current restrictions, we are unable to open our indoor rides and attractions or run live entertainment.

    Like before, we have additional hygiene and safety measures in place throughout LEGOLAND Windsor, including temperature checks on arrival, enhanced cleaning, one-way systems, and social distancing markers in our ride queues, shops, restaurants and more. To allow for social distancing and additional cleaning, we have reduced the number of guests that we let into the Park each day and everyone must pre-book their tickets.

    Please be aware that face masks are required on all rides (we recommend you remove these on water rides) for guests aged 11 and over*, as well as in other locations throughout the Park.

    Hawk Conservatory Trust 2021

    All day

    Hawk Conservatory Trust- Opening 12th April 2021

    Set within 22 acres of stunning countryside, the Hawk Conservancy Trust is an award-winning visitor attraction which is open every day* and offers a full day out for all ages. Arrive early and be sure to see our world-class flying displays throughout the day, and many other activities in between.

    Our mission at the Hawk Conservancy Trust is the conservation of birds of prey. As a registered charity, we couldn’t do our work without you and we aim to make your day at the Trust as memorable and as enjoyable as possible.

    Whether it’s the thrill of holding one of our rare birds of prey, watching world-class flying displays in one of our three display arenas, or simply meandering through our 22 acre grounds of woodland and wildflower meadow, we want to share with you our love of birds of prey and encourage you to join in our mission to conserve them.

    We care for more than 130 birds of prey from owls to eagles and during your visit, we’ll tell you more about each species and our efforts to protect them. Our purpose-built National Bird of Prey Hospital™ is where sick, injured or orphaned raptors are cared for and where you can take a sneaky peek at some of our ongoing rehabilitation work.

    Our on-site British Conservation Discovery Centre is home to our Raptor Nest Box Project (RNBP), run by our Conservation Biologist Dr Matt Stevens, for Barn Owls, Tawny Owls, Little Owls and Kestrels. As well as exploring the ecology of nest box use, this project aims to assess how the use of nest boxes impacts the populations of these species.

    Led by our Head of Conservation and Research, Dr Campbell Murn, our International Vulture Programme  (IVP) is a multi-partner initiative that focuses on the research and conservation of vultures. We’re a core member of the IUCN Species Survival Commission’s Vulture Specialist Group (VSG); a growing global partnership of more than 60 specialists working together towards vulture conservation. As a member of the conservation consortium Save Asia’s Vultures from Extinction (SAVE), we’re able to work towards the prevention of the poisoning of vultures and help create Vulture Safe Zones in south Asia.

    There are special activities and events at the Trust throughout the year which include Owls by Moonlight evenings, Experience Days for all the family and Photographic Days which enable you to get closer to our birds in a more intimate setting.

    Feathers Restaurant is a spacious and contemporary space. It is fully licensed for alcohol and offers a range of catering options from snacks to meals, and has free Wi-Fi for visitors. The Trust Shop sells a range of gifts, souvenirs and branded merchandise. We can also provide a unique fully licensed and catered venue for civil weddings, parties, corporate events, meetings and private functions.

    For more than 50 years, the Hawk Conservancy Trust has worked in the fields of conservation, education, research and rehabilitation and your visit goes towards helping that work. You can also help be a part of some of our most important projects by becoming a supporter of one of our programmes or by joining one of our membership schemes where you’ll receive various benefits throughout the year.

    Each of us has heaven and hell in them.

    In a profile pic-obsessed, filter-fixated world where online and reality blur, influencer Dorian Gray makes a deal. For his social star never to fade. For the perfect self he broadcasts to the world to always remain. But as his mental health starts to decline, as corruption and murderous depravity start to creep into his world, the true and horrific cost of his deal will soon need to be met.

    From the team behind the New York Times Critic’s Pick, five star “game-changer” (Telegraph) online production of What a Carve Up! comes a brand-new adaptation that brings Oscar Wilde’s Faustian tale kicking and screaming into a world of Instagram, Facebook and dating apps.
