RSPB Conwy – celebrating 25 years

Welcome to the go-to place for families who love nature. Kids will love getting hands-on with our activities or running wild in the outdoor play area. There are quizzes, trails with viewpoints and hides to make the most of your visit. You’ll even get to meet Tegi, our friendly earth-monster.

The reserve situated just off the A55 on the banks of the Conwy estuary, with magnificent views of Snowdonia and Conwy Castle, is one of the most beautiful and accessible places in North Wales to enjoy a stroll along circular walks.

Home to water rails and warblers to moths and dragonflies and an unforgettable experience of beautiful starling murmurations as the birds move in unison, it’s the ideal place to watch nature at its best.

You can get an even closer view of a nature spectacle when you visit one of our hides looking out onto two freshwater lagoons with islands. These lagoons provide a valuable high-tide resting area for estuary birds.

A wildlife garden near the visitor centre attracts invertebrates, including the six-spot burnet moth, common blue butterfly, and emperor dragon. Over 270 plant species have been recorded, including the bee orchid and cowslip.

You’ll be spoilt for choice with our events programme and don’t miss out on the fantastic farmer’s market held at the reserve on the last Wednesday of every month.

Our coffee shop, overlooking a lagoon, is a great place for a light lunch or afternoon tea, and our shop is bursting with fantastic gifts and wildlife goodies.

What’s about?

Starling - Visit us in winter to witness thousands of these birds dancing at dusk as their murmurations fill the skies - a true spectacle!

Water rail - Water rails are seen regularly at Conwy - often from our coffee shop window!

Sedge warbler - These fantastic migrants arrive at Conwy from Africa in April and fill our reedbeds with noise throughout the summer.

Emperor dragonfly - Visit in summer to see Britain’s bulkiest dragonfly as they patrol the edges of the lagoons.

Black-tailed godwit - These elegant, long-billed birds use the lagoons in spring and autumn. 

Stoat - These charismatic mammals are often spotted most frequently in spring frolicking amongst the rocks on the estuary track. 

Snipe - Look closely along the edges of the lagoon islands throughout autumn and winter, you may spot a snipe!
