  • Great place to visit with children and family. A word of warning. You CANNOT take dogs into the Reserve! You can walk your dog on the outside of the reserve where there is a decent path commanding excellent views of the Thames. That said, the potential to see some amazing insects and animals makes this a rather large jewel in the RSPB crown, as my attached photographs demonstrate. So in short come along see, discover, learn and respect nature and the environment.
  • Beautiful scenery of nature. Good to walk and catch a bit of fresh air. Parking available as well
  • Extremely peaceful and lovely place to walk with family/pets/friends etc. Can rent binoculars as well for those who are interested in bird watching. Would definitely recommend to anyone.
  • One of the RSPB's most family friendly reserves with plenty of activities to keep the children interested, wheelchair access, binoculars (and even bikes) for hire, a shop and a cafe - there are even toilets half way round the board walk for those who can't wait until you get all the way back to the visitors centre! Special activities like pond dipping and a grasshopper safari are available during the summer holidays. Highly recommended.
  • Nice place with a good variety of habitat. Good for birds, insects and reptiles. Good facilities and well maintained.
