Discover nature when you need it most

Here’s the latest Covid-19 information for visiting RSPB nature reserves safely.

It’s lovely to hear how much nature helps lift your spirits during this challenging time and we know that for many of you, RSPB reserves are a big part of providing enjoyment and solace in the natural world.

Before visiting us, please read through the following information about which reserves and facilities are closed, national restrictions, plus changes that may be in place to help
keep you and our teams safe.

What’s open?

In line with guidance from the Governments of the UK, many of our facilities have closed. Some of our car parks, trails and toilets are open for local visitors' essential daily exercise, where resources and the layout of facilities allows. Our visitor centres, shops, cafes and hides will remain closed throughout the lockdown periods.

Please see the map below or check the individual reserve page to see which facilities are open.

We strongly urge you to follow guidance from the relevant country administration on non-essential travel and encourage visitors to stay local. 

In Northern Ireland, the indoor spaces across our nature reserves will be closed from 26 December in line with the new Covid-19 restrictions announced by the NI Executive. Our outdoor spaces will remain open for you to enjoy. For full facilities information please check the map below or individual reserve webpages.

In Wales, visitor facilities are closed, in line with the new national lockdown measures announced by the Welsh Government.

In England, our visitor centres, shops, cafes and hides are currently closed in line with new national lockdown measures. Depending on the layout of facilities at each site, the majority of our trails, car parks and toilets are open for local, essential daily exercise only. 

In Scotland, due to the latest Covid restrictions many of our facilities are now closed. Reserve trails remain accessible in line with the Scottish Outdoor Access Code and the majority of our car parks are open for local use. For full information on facilities please check the map below or individual webpages. Please follow the latest Scottish Government restrictions on travel and advice on physical distancing and hygiene

Access to island reserves may be restricted in line with ferry capacities, ScotGov advice and local restrictions. Please check with the relevant ferry company before you travel.

Covid-19 guidance is regularly changing and can differ between UK countries and between areas within the same country. Please check for country-wide and local restrictions or closures using the link below.

Check for local restrictions

The map below shows which RSPB reserves and facilities are closed at the moment.

We strongly urge you to visit your most local nature reserves and green spaces only. You don’t currently need to pre-book your visit, but please be aware that some of our sites have limited car parking, so can quickly become full. Be mindful of this before you set off and do consider visiting at a less busy time or having an alternative destination if needed when you get there.

Keeping everyone safe

We want to let you know how we are responding to the changing Covid-19 situation. Our priority is to keep you and our teams safe. If you visit, you’ll notice we’ve made some changes.

When it comes to which facilities are open on reserves, each site has been considered on an individual basis. We have looked at what it is possible to keep open across the UK, within country-specific Government guidance, the layout of facilities, and the staffing we have available to manage the site safely.

We also take precautions to protect our special wildlife.

What you need to know

Please observe all current country-specific guidance on travel, maximum group sizes, social/physical distancing and hygiene if visiting your local RSPB reserve as part of essential daily exercise. Be aware the guidance may be different in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland and between areas. Please do not visit if you are experiencing symptoms of Covid-19.

Hand sanitiser chevron-down

Hand sanitiser is available on some reserves, but we advise you to bring your own too.

Face coverings chevron-down

We ask that all visitors, except those who are exempt from doing so, please wear a face-covering while in RSPB toilets.

Thank you for your co-operation to help keep everyone safe.

In line with Government regulations, our teams will be wearing face coverings indoors too.

Please be aware that Government guidance on face coverings may be different in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Social/physical distancing chevron-down

Please adhere to country guidance on group sizing and social distancing, both indoors and outdoors, on our reserves.

On several sites, we have introduced one-way systems or created more passing places along our trails where necessary to allow for social/physical distancing.

Please follow the signage in place. Be aware the guidance on distancing may be different in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Test and Trace chevron-down

Currently, whilst our indoor facilities are closed, test and trace will not be necessary.

For further government information, see EnglandScotlandWalesNorthern Ireland.

Toilets chevron-down

Toilets are open on some reserves and we have implemented enhanced cleaning regimes in line with Government guidance. Where it isn’t possible to have our toilets open, this may be due to country-specific or local restrictions, the layout of our facilities, or the staffing we have available to manage them safely. Please see the map below for facilities available at individual reserves.

Hides chevron-down

In line with UK government guidelines, our hides are currently closed and will remain so over the lockdown periods. See the map below for facilities available at individual reserves.

Refreshments  chevron-down

In line with UK government guidelines, our cafes are currently closed and will remain so over the lockdown periods.

 

Please see the map below for facilities available at individual reserves.

Opening times chevron-down

Some reserves are operating reduced opening times or days to normal, in order to maintain safe numbers or due to reduced staffing at the moment.

Please see the map below for the opening times of individual reserves or visit the individual reserve website.

Local restrictions chevron-down

We strongly encourage visitors to stay within their local area and visit your most local nature reserves and green spaces only.

 

Under country or local restrictions, group sizes, social/physical distancing and other requirements may differ from site to site, even within the same country. Please check individual site information for additional restrictions that apply before planning a visit.
