How to get here

By bicycle (Sustrans cycle route)

National route 5.

By train

The nearest train station is Llandudno Junction, less than a mile from the reserve. A map of how to reach the reserve by foot or cycle from the station can be found in the downloads section on the right hand side of the main Conwy page. The quickest route is to turn left out of the station and take the first left down Conway Road (with two small supermarkets on your left). Just before the road bridge (Ffordd 6G), take the footpath to the right, then turn left onto Ffordd 6G. Cross the road carefully and continue to the left on the pavement across the road. The road goes past Tesco and a cinema complex to the large A55 roundabout. The reserve is on the south side of the roundabout and is signposted.

A more enjoyable, but slightly longer walk, is just over a mile. Turn left out of the station and take the first left down Conway Road. Go under the bridge and after 200 m, go under another bridge and immediately up steps to join Conwy Road. Walk towards Conwy and at the start of the gardens, drop to your right and loop beneath Conwy Road through an underpass. Then it’s over the footbridge and follow the estuary track for half a mile until you get to the reserve car park.

Present a valid rail ticket for arrival at Llandudno Junction in the Waterside Coffee Shop on the day of travel, and we’ll give you a free cup of tea or filter coffee.
