Minsmere – RSPB

Sheepwash Lane, Westleton, IP17 3BY. England

From ancient woodland, wetlands and reedbeds, to lagoons and a shingle beach, few sites can offer such a range of habitats for your class to explore. Your class can enjoy hands-on practical activities within easy walking distance of the well-equipped Discovery Zone and classroom.

Our beautiful reserve is home to an extraordinary range of wildlife. Visit us and you might see butterflies and dragonflies, rare plants and little terns on our sand dunes or those iconic birds – avocets, marsh harriers and bitterns – whose conservation stories are so intimately linked to Minsmere. Whether studying birds, other wildlife, landscape or habitats, groups will find a warm welcome here, as well as one of the UK’s best wildlife experiences.

Don’t forget, if you are looking for help with funding the cost of your trip, you can apply for a bursary!
