It is with great regret that we announce the Tomb of the Eagles is to close permanently. Unfortunately, the practicalities of safely operating the unique hands-on visitor experience in the current climate have led us to this very hard decision.
As a family, we would like to thank everyone who has visited and been a part of the Tomb of the Eagles since Ronnie's discovery of the site in the summer of 1958.
