Norfolk Wildlife Trust

Whether you are looking for a day of exploration, adventure or relaxation, head to one of Norfolk Wildlife Trust’s Visitor Centres and wild spaces this summer.

Cley and Salthouse Marshes: A trip to the wildlife charity’s very first nature reserve on the north Norfolk Coast, dating back to 1926, promises stunning views, coastal walks and sights and sounds of the amazing array of wildlife that seek sanctuary in this special place. The award-winning Visitor Centre hosts events and workshops, interactive displays and art exhibitions and an enticing gift and bookshop. Visitors won’t want to miss the café with its stunning panoramic views over the marshes and coastline, perfect for a quick bite and a cuppa before heading out to explore the reserve.

Hickling Broad: It’s easy to spend a day walking around Hickling Broad’s trails or gently whiling away a couple of hours on one of our summer wildlife boat tours. If you make it past the gift shop at the Visitor Centre and the picnic area, there are circular walks through reedbed and woodland to enjoy, or head to the hides for incredible views of wildlife and the surrounding landscape.

Ranworth Broad: Ranworth holds plenty of attractions for both families and naturalists. Accessed via a boardwalk through atmospheric woodland and reedbed, the floating Broads Wildlife Centre hosts wildlife activities, refreshments and a gift shop as well as offering impressive views and bird watching opportunities over the water. Stop along the boardwalk to enjoy a brand-new wildlife hide, which offers views of the site’s resident kingfishers and otters to lucky visitors. By far the best way to explore Ranworth is by boat – you can book onto a guided boat trip from April to October.
