So good to be able to watch the birds in close up on webcam and through telescopes and binoculars. Really helpful knowlesgable volunteers. Only drawback is the stairs to reach the viewing room.

Great views, knowledgeable RSPB staff, binoculars and zoom cameras available for a close up view. A must visit for bird watchers and wild life lovers. Lovely walk to get to the tower, although do not use the cliff path if you have no head for heights.

If you visit South Stack make time to go into Ellins Tower to chat to the RSPB staff there. Really useful with lots of good information on what to do and where to look for things. Also has the webcam on the choughs nests.

This is definitely worth a visit if you're going to South Stacks lighthouse or even just passing through! You pass by the various parking lots (all free, despite previous reviews!) before you get to the lighthouse parking. The RSPB staff are very enthusiastic and want you to get the most out of your visit. There are binoculars and telescopes available... More

Brilliant bird hide has binoculars, telescopes and lots of information. Helpful staff and very knowledgable. Stunning views of cliffs and out to sea. Never to dislike really.

Another enjoyable visit to RSPB reserve. Wardens keen to share knowledge. Plenty of wildlife, although puffins elusive today. Always enjoy walking along cliff top. Don't forget your binoculours.
