Myself and my father were gifted a falconry experience day as birthday gifts from another family member; though we both love birds of prey and have been to several different raptor centres before, this was the first time either of us has been able to get close and hands-on with the birds. Suffice to say we both came away amazed... More

Really nice place to visit, learned lots about different types of birds and really enjoyed the show with different birds, especially the two owls at the end.

I recently visited with 12 girlfriends for a hen do, we joked as we went in that they probably don't see many hens through their doors! Watched a brilliant flying display & had a quiet word with the speaker. Our hen got to hold an owl & we had a very informative talk by a volunteer. He also told us... More

I've recently taken part in one of the photo days offered at Libertys. We took a range of birds out in the new forest to give us a chance at taking some natural looking photos. The weather wasn't brilliant which can't be helped, but we made the best of the conditions, finding perches and situations where the light was as... More

We spent an enjoyable couple of hours here today with our young children, which included a talk and a good look at some of their reptiles and a tarantula. Following this we had some time to look around at the many species of birds before watching the flying display, featuring hawks, owls, vultures and eagles. The staff are caring and... More

Great day with fantastic birds. It is amazing the rescue work they do here. The birds all look so well and cared for. The place its self is a but run down but all the money must go into the animals as they all look so healthy

Although a bit of a trek from where we were staying in Lymington (2 x trains, bus and about 40 mins walk) the effort was definitely worth it. What first greets you is the well stocked gift shop which has various unique items to purchase – if you are interested in owls there will definitely be something you will want... More
