There's a lot of great walks here through a variety of habitats. There's also plenty of hides for serious bird watching. You can hire binoculars cheaply and even better for £3 you can hire a kids adventure pack, which includes a magnifying glass, binoculars, pond...More

Don't follow satnav if travelling from North of the river! Parking is much further than it looks on the map. Some parts of the centre have very easy walks with access to hides. Other areas are not not easy to walk and need more signage....More

Was feeling a little desolate at not seeing kingfishers, but then spent 30 minutes watching Otters eating and frolicking - absolutely joyful. Beautiful place, with great bird spotting to be had, fabulous adventure play area, and lots of places to picnic. Free to visit, with...More

Dogs are welcome around the centre on a lead, there is seating outside if you want to stop and eat. I don't think dogs are allowed inside the cafe or shop unfortunately, hopefully that will change in the future.

Hi Christine, there is disabled access to the cafe. There's a disabled carpark next to the centre and then a lift up to the top floor.
