We were looking for something to do, to round off a camping w/e with our four grandchildren - 12yrs down to 4yrs - and decided to give this attraction a try. Have to say on arrival, I had serious doubts about what we would find inside, but I'm pleased we gave it a try anyway. The reptile area is small,... More

I visited here with my partner recently, we thoroughly enjoyed it. It was clear to see the birds are all very well looked after. The demonstrations were thrilling and informative. We would definitely recommend watching Liberty fly, she is beautiful!

On arriving at the centre we nearly drove away due to the run down nature of the carpet. We were very happy we changed our minds as the staff were very friendly and knowledgeable and were happy to answer any questions we had. The birds of prey flights were amazing and a clearly looked after well in the midst of... More

It was lovely seeing all the wild birds but I feel there was not enough there going on for the price you pay for entry got slightly bored in between the live flying which was the highlight

My wife, daughter and I had an excellent Sunday afternoon at the Liberty Owl Raptor and Reptile Centre. The main attraction has to be the birds of prey; there is such a wide variety but the reptile house is impressive too. The flying show was very entertaining, especially seeing the Siberian owls and the American bald eagle, with interesting input... More

As soon as you walk in you know you are going to have a really fun, full day. Clear information as to when the brilliantly informative talks were going to take place and how to find the locations are given by the person manning the shop. Really clever times to choose too! You have enough time to have a mooch... More

The Firstborn is fascinated by owls, so we headed over to Liberty's on a scorching afternoon last week. I'd been before in the autumn and found it pleasant enough but torrential rain had meant we missed seeing the birds fly. This time were were fortunate enough to watch owls vultures and eagles fly. Breathtaking. The creatures are interesting enough in... More
