Free accessible guided walks and bird watching experience this January!
After a busy festive period, January is the perfect time to unwind and take some time to connect with nature.
Why not joining us to our free guided walks at Titchwell Marsh Nature Reserve?
Located on the north coast of Norfolk, between the villages of Titchwell and Thornham, Titchwell Marsh is a rich mosaic of diverse habitats that include reedbeds, saltmarsh and freshwater lagoons where avocets, bearded tits and marsh harriers nest.
Discover what the nature has to offer with Titchwell’s experienced and knowledgeable guides in an accessible guided walk. This guided walk will be fully accessible for wheelchair users and people with limited mobility. The walk is also suitable for people with dementia and their carers as well as those with neurodiverse conditions.
It will be a chance for you to discover Titchwell’s rich and diverse landscapes and observe the wildlife present on site. You will have access to binoculars during the walk to enhance your bird watching experience. And to warm you up after a lovely brisk walk, enjoy a free hot beverage at the end of the event!
