Unspoilt, wild open spaces that are filled with a diversity of wildlife. Winding paths leading visitors through woodlands and bird-filled reedbeds down to a fabulous sandy beach are all on offer at Titchwell Marsh Nature Reserve.
Visitors might catch sight of a majestic marsh harrier as it dances through the sky, glimpse a shy water vole swimming lazily across the dragonfly pond or watch the sunset against the evening sky. From migrating birds who make their homes here over winter to the arrival of the swallows in late spring, there is always something to see. This is what makes Titchwell one of the most popular nature reserves along the north Norfolk coast.
During low tide, keen eyed visitors can spot the remains of a petrified forest on the sand flats; remnants of a time long before the area became known for its wildlife and stunning landscapes. Discarded tank hulls from World War II lie dormant on the beach marking an era when Titchwell wasn’t the tranquil, serene panorama that it is today.
With guided walks and self-led nature trails there is so much to discover. Throughout the year, visitors can engage in activities ranging from pond dipping to star gazing. Overnight camping and bioblitzes allow everyone to experience nature up close. From keen wildlife observers to new explorers there is so much to see and do at Titchwell. Come for an hour and stay for the day!
