Such a pretty location to relax , walk on the marshes and to see the boats. Good place to have a refreshment. Will return and take a trip out on a boat to see the seals.

One of the great natural coastal areas of Britain. A quiet tranquil wildlife paradise and really quite a unique mixture of wildlife and a most distinctive look to it. Can be accessed through a seal trip from Morston (not every trip stops off) or a...More

I love this area, so peaceful for watching and enjoying nature, birds and seals. There are seal trips to go on and they are really worth every penny.

A good sized car-park, provided by the National Trust (free for members). Walk a short distance across the quay to access the coastal path. It's hard to know which way to look as an amazing range of birds are visible from this path.

This is basically a National Trust car park with a viewing tower which affords big-sky views for miles out to sea. The small visitor center was shut when we landed, but tide times were posted for your safety.

I not sure how much it is to park. If you are a national trust member it is free. Off the top of my head I think it maybe £4 for the day. Sorry not sure about the times .

There are toilets in the Natire reserve if you land or at the quay. But the boats are too small.
