Our urban reserves provide the opportunity to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and get close to nature. You might be surprised how much wildlife you can see in, or close to, some of our major towns and cities.

Visitor tips

These tips will help you to make the most of your visit:

  • These reserves can be very popular – visit early in the day for the best chance of seeing more timid wildlife
  • Bring the family - our urban reserves have something for everyone and are the perfect day out
  • Some of the animals and birds at our urban reserves are used to people and can be very obliging
