A mosaic of wetland habitats awaits your class at Ham Wall nature reserve.
What we offer
Our Avalon Marshes reserves, including Ham Wall, lie within the northern part of the Somerset Levels, about two miles west of Glastonbury.
Steeped in history, archaeology, wildlife and atmosphere, there is so much for your class to explore.
Our exciting variety of hands-on activities ensure memorable learning experiences throughout the year. Boardwalks, hides and viewing platforms enable groups to experience the wetland wildlife of Avalon Marshes at close quarters.
We've got a visitor centre with indoor space available for classes, a boardwalk, pond-dipping platforms and much more for you to explore!
To find out more, take a look at the list of the programmes and contact us to make a booking.
Each programme is designed to last two hours; sessions run from 10am - 12pm, and then 12.30pm - 2.30pm. Two programmes can be combined to make a whole day visit.
Our work at Avalon Marshes is kindly supported by Natural England.
