Wonderful place to walk around and plenty to see , even if there aren't too many birds around. Lovely Butterflies, Moths , Damselflies and Chasers as well as flowers. Nice Cafeteria serving a wide selection of food and drinks. We'll be back.

I visited for the first time in July along with my husband. After having read the reviews on trip advisor I had high hopes for this place. However when we visited a map in the visitor centre advised that due to work on the railway bridge there is no access to the park north of the railway line. This cuts... More

My husband and I stumbled upon this place while in the area. It was a rainy day so we only spent a couple of hours but you could easily spend a lazy day following the different trails in nice weather. It was beautiful and an honour to be able to share the natural habitat with the wide variety of birds... More

walked around Whisby and heard the Nightingales- what a bonus. the natural world centre is very informative and interesting showing both local and national historical items of interest. whilst we were at the centre there were some beautiful photos on the wall for the Kodak camera competition.

The car park is ONLY £2 all day (use to be £1) which I think is great as you can easily spend a good 4-6 hours there. The nature reserve has lots of different walks you can go on which is great. The children love to explore. They have a great outdoor sandpit and water area. Our children can spend... More

I was once a regular visitor going at least a couple of times a week as I love the area and the walks around the lake. So does my dog. Then they started to charge a £1 a week which is fine if you go once in a while. I asked about a yearly parking charge but nothing in this... More

Great for lovely walks around the many lakes at Whisby. There is also an amazing climbing frame which opens for the spring and summer which the robe bridges go over the water. Planty to see and do and the cafe is nice as well

There are a number of walking route options open of differing lengths. All good and once they restore access over the railway an even richer range. There is some magnificent wildlife living in and around these lakes. Once walked there on Christmas morning before the animals had been disturbed and saw creatures and birds that you rarely get a glimpse... More

Lovely place for a half day out, with sandy play area and water feature for the kids. Take a spade and wellies. Cafe is nice, with a expected range of cakes, ice creams, tea and coffee, lovely gift shop to peruse at leisure. The main thing is the Nature reserve with Bird viewing area and lovely walks. Well recommended and... More
