Details

This nature reserve offers a haven for wildlife on the edge of the city, but is a great place for people too with a RSPB visitor centre, a café, shop and children's play area.

Covering over 438 hectares from Uskmouth to Goldcliff, the reedbeds, saline lagoons, wet grassland and scrub, have attracted a wealth of wetland birds. The reserve is also an excellent place to see other wildlife.

Cetti's warblers and bearded tits can be seen and heard in the reedbeds, and ducks, geese and swans visit the reserve in large numbers during the winter. You'll enjoy spectacular views of the Severn estuary all year round.

Opening Details

Open all the time
