How to get here

By train

Swale Halt (request stop), 3 miles (4.8 km) from reserve car park. From the station, walk alongside the A249 onto the Isle of Sheppey, turn right after 1 mile (1.5 km) where the reserve is signposted. Follow the rough track for 2 miles (3 km) to the car park at Kingshill Farm. NB. The reserve proper and first hide are about 1.5 miles (2.5 km) beyond this point.

By bus

Buses are very infrequent, travelling between Sittingbourne and the nearest stop for the reserve, Queensborough. This is 4 miles (6.4 km) away.

By road

From Junction 5 on the M2, follow the A249 to towards Sheerness. The reserve is signposted from the exit for Iwade and Ridham Dock, which is immediately before the Sheppey bridge. At the roundabout, take the second exit onto the old road bridge. On the Isle of Sheppey, after 1.25 miles (2 km), turn right following the RSPB sign. Follow the rough track for approximately 2 miles (3 km) to the car park at Kingshill Farm.
