It costs £5 per car, and you can relax in the café, peruse the shop, take a stroll around the lakes, or visit one of the hides and see if you can spot one of the many rare species of birds and dragonflies that visit during the year. Don’t worry if you forget your binoculars, as you can borrow a pair from the shop, for only £3. Keep an eye out for birds of prey, which perch atop the nearby towers and have been known to swoop down on their unsuspecting prey! There is a large children’s play area for kids to enjoy, as well as an educational space for schools and other groups to use.
