What we offer
Kingfishers and water voles are regular visitors and are just some of the fascinating wildlife living on this reserve.
The visitor centre has superbly-equipped classrooms and interactive displays. Purpose-built pond dipping and minibeast areas mean children can freely explore the habitats safely, and get the most out of their visit with us.
To find out more, take a look at the list of the programmes and contact us to make a booking.
Each programme is designed to last two hours. Sessions run from 10am to 12pm and then 12.30 to 2.30pm. Two programmes can be combined to make a whole-day visit.
