Huxley's Birds of Prey Centre and Gardens

Reviewed By emmawA6537DV - Horsham, United Kingdom

I cannot praise Huxlelys enough! Lived in Horsham over 25 years and had never been?! We got there in time for the first meet an owl session, had a wander round to see the birds, went for lunch in the garden centre, then back for the second meet an owl and the flying display. The team are wonderful, welcoming and very humorous! We so lucky to be able to take part in the display and fly some of the birds. For a relatively inexpensive day out compared to many days out for 7 of us it was an experience we won’t forget!

Knepp Wildland Safaris

Knepp - one of the largest re-wilding projects in lowland Europe. Encounter herds of wild ponies, cattle, deer and pigs as they roam 3,500 acres of Sussex, driving the forces of habitat regeneration. Join us on one of our vehicle-based safaris or guided walking tours and experience our profusion of birds, mammals, butterflies, beetles, reptiles, plants and fungi in a setting that feels as wild and dynamic as the African bush. Stay in one of our beautiful shepherd's huts or luxurious tents, or simply pitch your own in our exclusive Wildland campsite. You don't have to take one of our safaris to stay here, and you don't have to stay here to take a safari - though naturally we hope you'll be tempted to combine the two.

Warnham Local Nature Reserve is a great place for a walk and to teach the little one's a bit more about the local nature. It is informative and interesting. It is mostly accessible and they have set up a one way system so that social distancing can be maintained. There are picnic areas to sit and enjoy a spot of lunch or a bite to eat. They are building a new discovery centre and I can't wait to go and explore this when it is complete.
