Winter open weekend at Pulborough Brooks

Come along and join us over the weekend to sample the wintery delights of Pulborough Brooks.

Out on the nature trails you’ll find our friendly guides who will introduce you to some of the fabulous wildlife that spends the winter here, and families can pick up seasonal wildlife spotting challenge sheets. We’ll be running sessions at our bird feeding station with tips on identification and advice on how to attract birds to your garden.

Back at the visitor centre the team’s binocular and telescope specialists will be on hand to help you choose the ideal wildlife watching gift for yourself or a loved one. There will be special offers in the shop and we’ll be launching our festive menu in the café. If you’re looking for a lovely walk, Christmas gift ideas or a warming treat for lunch we’ll look forward to welcoming you.

There will be free entry and free parking for all visitors over the weekend but donations towards our nature conservation work are very welcome.

The visitor centre is open from 10 am until 4 pm each day.

Information on access around the trails

Please wear suitable outdoor clothing and footwear for your adventure. If you have binoculars then do bring them along but we do offer a binocular hire service.

The wetland trail includes access to our hides and bird feeding station. The paths are suitable for pushchairs and our tramper mobility buggy (which must be booked in advance). Dogs, other than assistance dogs, are not permitted on this trail.

The heathland trail is a natural path which can be boggy in places over the winter. There are also some steep gradients. Dogs are permitted on most parts of the heathland trail but should be kept under close control.

There is a car park, play area toilets, cafe and shop at the nature reserve.
