Together with National Lottery players, we’re saving nature across the UK.


Over the past 23 years, the Heritage Lottery Fund has given us £50 million to spend on making our nature reserves even better places for you to visit. To celebrate, we’d like to welcome you to visit selected reserves for FREE* between 3-9 December!

Just bring a National Lottery ticket and you, plus one adult and up to three accompanying children, can get free entry or free parking.
Why not plan your day out?
