Details

Join us for one of our morning Wader Watch walks. Take your place in a hide or Wader Watch point in the company of our experienced guides and witness the amazing sight of large flocks of whirling waders taking to the air. High tides covering the mudflats will push knot, oystercatchers and dunlin closer to the beach, where you can observe the excitement of thousands of wading birds gathered together. Call the Visitor Centre on 01485 210779 to book your place!

Please phone to book for coach parties as a height barrier has to be removed to allow coaches to enter the car park. Disabled visitors can drive down to the first hide across a private road by first contacting the reserve office to obtain a permit (can be done in advance by post).

By Road:
Leave King's Lynn on the A149, signed to Sandringham / Hunstanton and look out for the brown signs on the A149 Snettisham and Dersingham bypass. The reserve is signposted down Beach Road from the A149 Snettisham and Dersingham bypass. Continue down Beach Road for about 1 mile (1.6km) and the reserve is signposted on your left.
There is no easy access to the nature reserve because of steps and a rough path. Visitors with limited mobility may drive to the first hide along a rough, gated track through the chalet park - please contact the Snettisham office five working days before your visit to obtain an access permit.

By Public Transport:
From King's Lynn station it is 13 miles to RSPB Snettisham Nature Reserve.
