Spurn Discovery Centre in Yorkshire is now open!

Simon King OBE, Award-winning photographer and wildlife broadcaster, was guest of honour at the celebratory event to mark the celebration of the New visitor centre gateway to Spurn National Nature Reserve.

Addressing the audience at the launch, Simon King said:  “I’m honoured to have been asked to take part in the official opening of the Spurn Discovery Centre. Having a resource like this in such a magnificent wildlife hotspot will serve to help engage a far broader cross section of visiting public than has been seen to date. Only by forging a connection between ourselves and the wild world can we hope to foster a respect for and recognition of the true value of the very resources upon which our own survival ultimately depends.”

If you have a passion for watching wildlife this new visitor centre could make a great day out for all the family. Both the reserve and estuary offer beautiful views as well as offering insight into Spurn's heritage and the extent of the wildlife and habitats that can be found there. There is also a café and an educational space for school groups.

I got in touch with Spurn Discovery Centre and they are happy to discuss possible Home Ed groups attending at reasonable fees. So if you're interested just get in touch!

Why not take along this great guide here which includes a trail navigation map and local information such as Spurn's Historical past.
