Details for Leighton Moss

Leighton Moss nature reserve is a spectacular reed bed which supports a vast number of breeding birds. The visitor centre houses a range of interactive displays and a cosy tea room. Several nature trails and hides are situated around the reserve allowing easy access to view the wildlife from close quarters.

Leighton Moss is the largest reed bed in north-west England, and home to some really special birds such as breeding bitterns, bearded tits and marsh harriers. You might see deer too, not to mention butterflies aplenty!

Choose from a selection of trails and hides, most of which are suitable for wheelchairs, and get right to the heart of the reed bed. Or take the nature trail alongside two coastal lagoons to see lots of wading and water birds (ask in the visitor centre for more details).

Children will love finding out more about the reserve from the displays in the visitor centre and you can also enjoy a home-made meal and a drink in the tea room.
RSPB Leighton Moss nature reserve is an ideal place for people new to bird watching with a wide variety of birds to be seen throughout the year. There is a full programme of events and information available to help you get started. Our friendly staff are happy to provide help and advice.

Free Wildlife Explorer backpacks available. Family events run in the holidays. Interactive display panels in the education room. Interpretation panels on the nature trails. High chairs, children's books and toys in the tea room.
