Fritton Owl Sanctuary is accessed via Fritton Plant Centre in the village of Fritton near Great Yarmouth. This very small owl sanctuary provides shelter and care for unwanted and injured owls, where possible rehabilitating sick native owls to release them back into the wild. Entrance is free, however donations are encouraged to ensure the work of the sanctuary can continue.

Conservation and education are a top priority. Each enclosure has carefully written details about its inhabitant, with details about their usual height, weight and life expectancy, as well as information about their natural habitat.

For a small fee, it may be possible to hold or stroke an owl, however please speak to Louise or Mark about this on arrival.
