  • I LOVE Wingham Brush Nature Reserve! Not only is it a popular spot for locals but we have many holiday makers and tourists stopping here and enjoying the view. Most weekdays you'll find plenty of ppl taking advantage of the Brush for a relaxing lunch or just taking some time out from a busy life. On weekends it's popular with boaters and you'll often see family/friend groups sharing a picnic, ppl fishing or local kids swimming in the river. A previous comment mentioned the smell. Because Wingham Brush is a nature reserve, and as well as other wildlife, a home to thousands of bats, some ppl will notice an unpleasant odour which is from the bats. I've been going there for years tho and I don't even notice it any more. There are boardwalks built throughout the reserve that let you take in a lot of the plants and nature there. Kids and adults alike love walking the boardwalk, seeing the bats and other wildlife in their native habitat and exploring! A truly amazing experience is in summer at dusk when all the bats come out. Some may be freaked by this experience but lots of ppl come to the brush at dusk just to watch the bats waking up and starting their 'day'. As a local I love Wingham Brush. For anyone wanting a relaxing stop off on a driving holiday it's worth a visit.
  • Great place to relax
