Best Ever Experience!
11 September 2021
A truly brilliant day which exceeded expectations. Charlie was very friendly, funny, professional and knowledgeable. His passion for the birds and his job shone through. We flew four birds and learnt so much. Being up close and personal with them made it an experience never to be forgotten. An amazing place and an amazing day. I would thoroughly recommend this experience.

this experience was given as a gift at Christmas 2019, however due to Covid, had to be postponed a number of times. The venue however were happy and helpful to do this. We spent over 2.5 hours flying a range of owls and birds of prey. The handler was really friendly and informative and as it was jhst us and him we have loads of hands on time. I thought I might be a little scared when the large birds flew at me, but they we light and gentle. A lovely unique experience.

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!
