Covid-19 update 19th July 2021
We ask all visitors to follow social distancing where possible during their visit, particularly in the Discovery Centre and the bird hides.
At the Discovery Centre, staff and volunteers will continue to wear face masks and we will keep our additional hygiene measures in place. We would very much appreciate it if our customers continue to wear their face masks indoors and sign in using Track and Trace. Please be kind and patient with our staff, we are very excited to welcome more visitors to the Centre and hope that you will support us during this transition period so that we can make sure everyone is safe and comfortable.
It is still the case that there are a limited number of visitors allowed in the Discovery Centre, particularly Lime Kiln Café, so it's possible there may be a queue, particularly at busy times such as lunchtimes.
We are grateful for everyone's patience and understanding.
