The Conwy RSPB Nature Reserve is situated on the banks of the Conwy estuary and has magnificent views of Snowdonia and Conwy Castle. This reserve is a wonderful place to visit at any time of year.
Visitors can join one of the guided walks along pushchair-friendly paths. There are events to suit everyone from the dedicated “twitchers” to those who have just taken an interest in bird watching and it is an ideal venue for young families. Birds can always be seen from the visitor centre, and friendly experts are always on hand to help you spot birds such as godwits and shelducks or any of the more than 200 different species that have been seen at this reserve. If you are new to bird watching, why not join a guided walk with one of our volunteers every Saturday at 11 am? They will help you spot and identify the birds. For the children, there is a childrens’ activities table and there are two childrens’ activity trails, on which they will take part in the Bird Brain Challenge and Bird and Bug Bingo.
Sadly dogs are not allowed on to the trails, except registered assistance dogs, because of the breeding birds, and in winter roosting birds on the reserve.
There is also the opportunity to spend time at the Waterside Coffee Shop, which overlooks a lagoon, and enjoy a drink, a snack or even a light lunch sourced from delicious local and organic produce. We also have a well-stocked gift shop and on the last Wednesday of every month we have the fantastic farmers' market.
The shop and visitor centre is open every day (except Christmas Day) from 9.30 am-5 pm. The coffee shop is open from 10 am-4.30 pm (to 4 pm from November to March).
