nature reserves & observatories

Frampton Marsh

With over 50 miles of coastline, Lincolnshire’s Natural Coast is one of the most popular destinations for migrating birds in the UK. Call in at more than one reserve, some are quite close to each other. The landscape of each reserve is different and so attracts different plants and birds. Visit to see what you can find.

Thanks to two modern purpose built look-out points we’ve got the best possible opportunities to take this all in. Binoculars are available and the chance to view, even from your comfy chair whilst having a cup of tea!

North Sea Observatory

Thanks to its huge windows the café has the biggest of sea views and the opportunity to enjoy local produce too! This spectacular building at Chapel Point is open all year round. The marine observatory includes exhibitions on the local area, an art space, café, public toilets and car park.

Gibraltar Point Nature Reserve

The Gibraltar Point Visitor Centre is run and managed by the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust. The look-out point lets us watch over the dynamic stretch of unspoilt coastline running southwards. This point is known for its impressive views and sheer scale and diversity of wildlife.
