Blakeney National Nature Reserve

Extensive area of saltmarsh, vegetated shingle, dunes and grazing marsh

Wide open spaces and uninterrupted views of the natural and dynamic coastline make for an inspiring visit to Blakeney, at any time of the year.

The moving tides, covering pristine saltmarsh or exposing the harbour, combined with the varying light of Norfolk’s big skies, create an ever-changing scene.

Blakeney Point, a 3-mile-long sand and shingle spit, is a paradise for all kinds of wildlife.

Please note: nearest toilets are at Morston Quay and Blakeney Quay (not National Trust).

The best way to get close and personal to the wildlife, is to book a trip on one of the locally operated ferry trips departing from Morston Quay to Blakeney Point.

Blakeney National Nature Reserve is internationally famous for its bird life, with Blakeney Point being one of the most important sites in Europe for breeding terns.
Blakeney Point also offers a refuge for many other migrant and resident bird species and is also well known for the colony of Common and Grey seals.
These unusual habitats hold many rare species of plants and invertebrates, as well as being home to the breeding and wintering birds.
The tapestry of habitats all lend to the natural beauty of the National Nature Reserve’s landscape.
