This day is our most popular experience and gives the opportunity to be hands on with a range of birds. The day begins at 10am when you will be met with a refreshing cup of tea or coffee, that you can enjoy whilst handling some of our beautiful owls. This is then followed by the wonderful experience of spending time with a Harris Hawk whilst walking through the beautiful Sussex countryside (considered by most as the highlight of the day). After returning to the centre a lunch will be provided and you will have the chance to wander around the centre and see the wide collection of birds here. The rest of the afternoon will be spent on the lawn during our flying display in which you will be greatly involved by helping us fly the birds for the public. The day will end at 4pm.

This afternoon is tailored for the bird of prey lover, and owl lover and will give you the rare opportunity to spend the daylight hours with these elusive birds of prey.

Later in the afternoon you will get the chance to spend time on the lawn flying these beautiful creatures.
This also gives you the chance to fly a range of birds during our display and learn about all the birds we have here at the centre, with the chance to get close to eagles, buzzards, hawks and falcons!

This is designed for people who would like to fly a hawk in more natural surroundings. Our Harris Hawks are happy to fly to your hand whilst walking through some beautiful Sussex countryside.

All you need to do is wear suitable clothing and footwear and come ready to have an enjoyable time.

Photographic workshops are proving to be very popular and are a rare opportunity to capture the wonder of raptors on film. We can offer groups the chance to photograph a variety of birds including Peregrine Falcons, Eagles, Buzzards and various species of Owl . We are happy to bring birds out onto our lawn where they can be settled on a perch while you search for the perfect pose.
Huxley’s is also well known for its garden and there are many rare tropical specimens, including Thunbergias and Bananas. Tea or coffee and biscuits are provided and there is a pub close by which provides excellent lunches.
If you think your group might be interested please get in touch with us, by email, phone or come and see us. (CONTACT US)
We would be pleased to discuss your requirements as the workshops can be flexible to meet your needs.
