About

The nature reserve, including our welcome hub, shop and play-space are now open 9:30am-5pm daily. Our car park and toilets are open 9.00am-5pm. Our coffee shop is open 10am - 4pm. 

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 nature 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 lots of wonderful wildlife, including everything from water rails and warblers to moths and dragonflies, it’s the ideal place to watch nature at its best. Visit in winter to enjoy an unforgettable experience of beautiful starling murmurations, as the birds move in unison.
Get an even closer view by visiting one of our bird hides, which look out onto our two freshwater lagoons. These lagoons, with islands and scrapes, provide a valuable high-tide resting area for estuary birds.


The nature reserve is also home to plenty of impressive invertebrates, including the six-spot burnet moth, common blue butterfly, and emperor dragonfly. Over 270 plant species have been recorded too, including the uniquely beautiful bee orchid.
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 the shallow 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 nature spectacle!


Water rail – These elusive birds are seen regularly at RSPB Conwy - often from our coffee shop window!


Sedge warbler - These magnificent 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 birds use the lagoons in spring and autumn, using their long bills to find food in the mud.


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!
