Binocular and Telescope Open Days

Come along to our regular Binocular and Telescope Open Days at Newport Wetlands, where you can try out our full range for yourself, while getting expert advice from our friendly staff.

We stock the full RSPB range, starting at just £65, and also carry selected models from top brands Swarovski, Leica, Zeiss, and Nikon. We've got something to suit all ages, abilities and budgets, from RSPB Puffin Juniors (for 7-12 year olds), to top spec Swarovski NL Pures.

The more information you can give us, the better our recommendations can be, so it's worth thinking about three things before you come to buy:

1. You budget - a good pair of binoculars will cost around £150, however they can be as much as £3000, so it's worth having a budget in mind before you look.

2. When, where, and how you'll be using your binoculars - for example, do you need a lighter pair to take on your travels, or do you spend a lot of time in the early darker mornings in a hide?

3. Comfort and performance - your binoculars should be easy to use, and not strain your eyes. Many are anti-fog and waterproof, meaning you won't have to panic if you get caught out in the rain.

Can't make it at the weekends? No problem! Give us a call on 01633 636363 to book a 1-1 slot with one of our experts during the week (available 10.00-4.00 Mon-Sun).

We look forward to seeing you soon at Newport Wetlands! #takeacloserlook
