Marazion marsh is a lovely unspoilt natural area with open areas of water, reed beds, grassland and footpaths through. Great for bird watchers - swans, white egrets, kingfishers (only for the very early riser!) etc. The pleasant walk through the RSPB nature reserve can continue onwards for miles if you wish to go further through the small village of Ludgvan and on towards the North coast. Park at Jordan's cafe and walk towards Marazion then branch off left into the RSPB nature reserve.

Easy birdwatching from the road that runs along the side of the marsh.
Facilities at the cafe close by.
If you're expecting an 'attraction' forget it, this is an RSPB reserve - it's for birdwatching and nature including otters.

After visiting St. Michael's Mount and walking along Marazion beach, we found our dessert for the day: a lovely stroll through the marshland and picking lots of tasty brambles.

Excellent for birdwatching or just a walk. Can be very muddy for much of the year so boots needed. Surprisingly large; you could pass it on the main road almost without noticing. Alight from bus the stop before Marazion from Penzance.

A lovely little reserve, just behind the beach, with ample parking. Clearly-defined path through the reeds, enabling super views of nesting heron, but sadly no sight of the visiting pelican that the car park attendant had assured us had been seen recently. Lots of smaller birds about in the evening, as well as masses of rabbits. Slightly scary notice at one of the ponds, that this is an old mineshaft - amazing when you see on the OS map how many of these there are.

Travelling with 2 keen bird watchers we hoped this would be an interesting place to visit whilst staying at Marazion. We asked many locals for directions, plugged in its location to our satnav and still struggled to spot its one small sign at its entrance.

We found parking (£3.50) some distance away.

We saw a few birds and rabbits but there were only 2 small (one person) seats so we weren't easily able to wait around to see what else might appear.

My suggestion would be to bring your own seats if visiting here and to whoever runs it to get a couple of extra signs put up; it's one of the top attractions in Marazion on Trip Advisor.

Enjoyed this part of Marazion and the marsh forms a part of St Michael's Way, which is a far more interesting (albeit longer) way to walk from/to Penzance and Marazion. Intriguing little area of marsh land with some delightful view points for bird watching and a varied path through (pretty much) to the A394. Take care crossing the railway line!!! Path continues to Ludgvan and you can get back to Penzance via Gulval. Far better than the coast path in our opinion. Good views of St Michael's Mount too!

Worth a visit just to see the dozens of Rabbits running round with nothing to disturb them. There is also a bird sanctuary which attracts different species of water birds.

I love this little nature reserve in the spring, when it's one of the few places I know that has yellow irises growing wild. I always walk from the bus stop by Long Rock up the road to pick up the bit of St Michael's Way that crosses the reserve. I'm not a particular fan of bunnies but it's a novelty to be able to get close to them and there's always a heron or two as well. It's no less spectacular in winter, with ice on the marshes. There's a public loo in Marazion, ten minutes' walk away.
