KIELDER SALMON CENTRE
As the largest salmon hatchery in England and Wales, this is the perfect place to learn all about the life cycle of the Atlantic salmon, and to find out why and how the Environment Agency raises young salmon here to be released into the River Tyne.
We have the largest expanse of dark night sky in the whole of Europe, thanks to minimal light pollution. Winter nights are darkest and best for viewing deep sky objects such as galaxies, while in summer you can view the beautiful Milky Way, passing comets, shooting stars and see the Sun's surface using our incredible telescope.
KIELDER WATER BIRDS OF PREY CENTRE
Home to over 60 birds including eagles, owls, falcons, hawks and vultures, as well as a family of wallabies, this is the perfect place to learn about the conservation and care of the birds, as well as to see a flying demonstration, and to interact with the beautiful birds of prey.
