Great day out
31 August 2020
We had a really great afternoon at Willows Bird of Prey Centre. We flew three birds of prey: Scrumpy the Barn Owl, Boudica the Buzzard, and Hera the Harris Hawk. We also watched a display. The experience was just the two of us so we had a lot of opportunity to hold the birds, and we were looked after by Jill, who was really friendly and explained about the different birds and was happy to answer any questions. We also enjoyed the cream tea afterwards. It was easy to book (via email). In hindsight, we should have arrived in the morning in order to look around as there is a lot to see. Also, if you are going by public transport, it is better to get a taxi from Sevenoaks as it costs c.£13, whereas it is c.£20 from Orpington station. Taxi drivers seem to be unfamiliar with the venue and there are two garden centres with the same name, so be sure to write down the address.

Lovely day out

My husband and I were given the bird of prey experience voucher as a Christmas gift. For multiple reasons, we didn't have the chance to use it until October. Although the weather was cold and drizzly, it didn't take away from a fascinating afternoon. Our guide, Joe, was incredibly knowledgeable and had such an undeniable passion for his work. We learnt a lot from him. It was fantastic to get so close to the birds, and we were made to feel special. All in all, a truly memorable experience. Thank you.

Super Birthday Gift
12 May 2019
Super afternoon two-hour bird of prey experience (22nd April 2019). Our friendly and knowledgable expert introduced us to the birds that were kept at the centre, explaining a great deal about their features that differentiated them from other birds of prey. We then watched the Flying Display in the Blueberry Arena with the birds flying to command and more lively and interesting commentary from the keepers. Following the display our expert took us to the private flying area where we were able to handle the White Faced Scops Owl called Ratchet, a Barn Owl and a Harris Hawk. Being able to feed and handle these amazing birds was a great and unforgettable experience! All of the birds we saw were clearly very well cared for and looked after, in excellent condition and their environment clean and spacious. Overall we would recommend this activity for anyone wishing to get up close to these fantastic birds! A great job by all those working at Willow's Bird of Prey Centre, well done!

Very enjoyable visit
01 May 2019
We've just had really enjoyable, and therefore recommended, visit to Willows Bird of Prey Centre. The 2-hour experience started with an introduction to all of the various birds, followed by a public flying demonstration of certain birds and then our own opportunity to handle and fly a number of birds. Apart from the public demonstration the experience was just the two of us along with our excellent guide, Joseph, so it was very personal. It has to be said that Joseph's knowledge was quite exceptional from descriptions of the different species through to detailed knowledge of individual birds; including all the names. The 2 hours flew by (sorry for the pun!) and was followed by a pleasant cream tea. We could have gone on the nature trail that was included in the experience but we did not leave ourselves enough time however we did see some of the animals and we think that would be a very good visit for families with children - looked good. All in all a very good visit.

Super experience
04 April 2019
Arrived in good time and were met by employees of the bird of prey centre, we had about an hour being shown all the birds and given plenty of information from some very knowledgeable staff, we then watched the flight demo and then flew a number of birds ourselves. All in all it was a great experience. Afterwards we had a delicious cream tea in the cafe.

Great afternoon

A brilliant afternoon. Joseph was our guide he was friendly and informative explaining about the birds of prey and owls in the centre. We watched a flying demonstration. After that we handled 2 birds of prey and 2 owls ourselves flying them to glove and feeding them. After the two hours we had a lovely cream tea in the garden centre. The Willows centre is a lovely place to visit and they have a nature trail and other animals to see. Would definitely recommend to others.
