Visitor information


The Discovery Centre is accessible to all and open daily from 10am to 4pm. The Lime Kiln Café serves a range of hot and cold food and drink, with views across the saltmarsh. Our shop stocks an amazing collection of gifts, wildlife books and greeting cards. There is also an exhibition space featuring a series of panels, short films and interactive displays about the nature reserve.

We can get very busy at the Discovery Centre, so we thank everyone visiting for being considerate and patient with our hard working centre staff.

We have been pleased to welcome so many of you to our visitor centre. 

Thank you for all your lovely comments.
