A rather lovely centre full of many different birds, reptiles and creepy crawly's. The staff are really good with all the birds and reptiles and put on a decent show flying the different birds while sharing many facts about each one. They also have a nice little cafe for the guests to use and take a break if you're waiting... More

There's no denying that the Liberty's Owl Raptor and Reptile Centre is in need of serious refurbishment, and I initially felt that it was greatly overpriced at around £10 per adult. However, the birds are beautiful, and appear to be well looked after, and the flying display and knowledgeable presentation just about made up for it. The reptile centre was... More

Totally enjoyed my Owl Handling experience. The grandchildren just loved the birds, reptiles and the sandpit. Enjoy the intimacy of a family run park.

Great centre for Raptors and reptiles some rescued, now all cared for lovingly by the dedicated staff. The centre is open 10 - 5, which is punctuated by flying displays and close encounter reptile sessions, with plenty of time for a casual wander amongst the residents. Though the centre is compact, it is filled with many raptors and reptiles, plus... More

My son age 13 had a falconry experience afternoon today. It was fantastic. We have actually been to Liberty's many times and love the place. The staff love and care for the birds and reptiles so much and are so unbelievably knowledgable about their topics. The cafe is sweet and simple. The place doesn't get any outside funding like a...

Living in the New Forest area, we have thought about a visit to Liberty's, but never really got round to it. If I realised how excellent it was, we would have gone sooner. Took our two grandchildren off there, and they too just loved it. When we first arrived we were doubtful, as it looked rather tired, but once inside... More

I approached the prospect of a half day out with grandchildren to what is a local-to-us attraction. Life has taught me that such things can sometimes be a great disappointment. The Reptile centre was as I expected, just a little tame but, the owls and raptors were stunning. They have a large range of birds from Golden Eagles through Buzzards... More
