Add Walborough Nature Reserve to your Itinerary



Walborough is a salt marsh and limestone grassland, it is home to some rare plants and animals. For example, the Somerset hair-grass, cowslips, honewort and autumn lady's tresses as well as the green-winged and early purple orchid can be found here. In late summer sea-lavender comes up and adds some colour to Walborough. All these flowers attract butterflies to the area and multiple kinds can be seen here. Besides butterflies, birds are attracted to the area and are wintering on the salt march. The birds can mostly be seen during autumn and winter.

The site is great for a family day out to enjoy the beautiful flowers and stunning views. The best time to visit Walborough is from April to July and is open at all times. There are footpaths that allow access to the site and parts are surfaced path for wheelchair users. Dogs are allowed, but need to be kept on lead. There are parking opportunities by Uphill Way. The grassland can be reached by car in 50 minutes from the city centre. When traveling by public transport, it will take between an hour and 30 minutes and 2 hours. Entry to this nature reserve is free of charge!
