Great Owl and Raptor afternoon experience!
Nov. 2021 • Couples
What an amazing afternoon on the Owl and Raptor experience at Huxley's! We can't believe how many birds we got to handle and we even got to fly owls,falcons and hawks during the display! The knowledge from all the volunteers was incredible! A massive shout out to James who was so informative about each species and it was clear how much interest and care he has for the birds! Very welcoming and friendly which made the whole experience fantastic! If you are looking for a gift - booking one of the experiences is 100% worth it! Lots of memories made! We can't wait to return!

The cafe on site in the garden centre was also lovely!

Amazing experience!
Jul. 2021
This place is just across the road from us, we had Julian bring some of his birds over for our wedding 3 years ago and also my 50th. Incredible watching the falcons, owls and buzzards flying around and actually being able to hold one on your arm. Definitely recommend a visit.

Fantastic day out
Sep. 2021
My wife and I have just come back from having a wonderful time at the Huxley's Birds of Prey centre. There are plenty of birds to see, from all kinds of owls, falcons, eagles, hawks, vultures, a kookaburra and a raven, and some others.

The staff were wonderful, very communicative and knowledgeable, willing to spend times educating us about the birds, and were more than willing to let us handle the birds. They had a wonderful display with various birds, including an owl, a couple of vultures, and a hawk. They also allowed us some time holding an Abyssinian eagle owl named Truffle.

We had such a great time that we're planning to visit it again. It's well worth stopping over to see.

I've never written a venue review before, but I just had to promote this place. It deserves more attention.

Brilliant
Jul. 2021
As a family living in Horsham we've always loved the Bird of Prey centre. Every time we've been there, staff have been helpful, informative, and clearly incredibly caring about the birds.

They do sessions where you can stroke an owl or fly one to your hand, or you can walk about and marvel at the many species or have a chat with the raven!

Long live Huxley's!

Owl and raptor experience
Jun. 2021 • Friends
Had an amazing afternoon doing the owl and raptor experience. I got to hold an fly several birds - many more than I thought I would be allowed to! The handlers were so friendly and knowledgeable and didn't rush my experience. Well worth the money.

Hidden Gem
Jul. 2021
What a hidden gem and such great value! The birds were fantastic, the staff were friendly, knowledgeable and truly passionate about what they do. We loved how we were able to interact with the birds. The flying display was the best we have seen, not only the birds but how the staff presented the show, knowledgeable, personal and humorous, what a great find and well worth a visit.

This bird of prey centre is a hidden gem
Jun. 2021
We enjoyed a falcon and owl raptor experience here for my brother's 40th and, what can I say, it was brilliant. The staff there who are all volunteers have a real passion for the birds they look after and I couldn't have imagined a more enjoyable afternoon spent getting to know the birds and flying them. I would highly recommend it for kids and adults alike.
