If you would like to book a visit to Withymead at this time, please click on the calendar and see what dates and times are available. 

We aim to make all visits safe for everyone, by ensuring that only one party or person is on the site at anyone time, and that the wardens have time to sanitise the hides and benches between visits. The site is open by appointment from Friday - Sunday, and we have scheduled cleaning times in between the visits on the calendar.

Routine time slots available:





Other times please get in touch.

Although the site is closed on Monday - Thursday at the moment,  if you have a special requirement such as early morning photography, a painting day for a group, mobility access requirements or special shielding needs, please send an enquiry email to and we will do what we can to accommodate you.

We are unable to provide refreshments at this time, so please make the most of your visit and feel free to bring your own refreshments or picnic, and enjoy them on the landing stage on the reserve or at the picnic tables by the Study Centre.

To protect the wildlife we regret that dogs are not allowed onto the main site, however dogs are allowed, on leads, in the Study Centre area. We ask that owners clean-up after their dogs.

We look forward to seeing you.
