Visit our reserves

Each visitor centre is as unique and individual as each nature reserve. Hickling and Ranworth are the gateways to our most famous Broad reserves. Both reserves have dipping platforms where our experienced Education Officers lead scheduled Dyke Dabbling events during the holidays. You’ll be amazing at the weird and wonderful freshwater invertebrates and all their crazy characteristics! Or why not explore the edge of Norfolk at our coastal reserves, Holme Dunes and Cley Marshes. Have you ever wondered what wonderful wildlife lives in our seas? At Holme Dunes we’ll be Sea Dipping to find out what exactly is swimming around in the North Sea off Norfolk. Each visitor centre offers a wide range of natural history books for all ages, refreshments and gifts. So why not visit us at one of our visitor centres, the gateway to some of Norfolk’s great wildlife spectacles and stunning wild landscapes.
