Spectacular wildlife and uninterrupted views of beautiful coastline

At the heart of the Norfolk Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Blakeney National Nature Reserve boasts wide open spaces and uninterrupted views of the beautiful North Norfolk coastline. The four mile long shingle spit of Blakeney Point offers protection for Blakeney Harbour and the surrounding saltmarshes, providing a perfect habitat for the vast array of residential and migratory wildlife.

Internationally important, the reserve is noted for its spectacular displays of the summer breeding tern colony and winter breeding grey seals ensuring delight for visitors all year round. Great for walkers, sightseers and wildlife enthusiasts alike, Blakeney National Nature Reserve guarantees an inspiring and memorable visit no matter the season. 

The best way to see the wildlife on Blakeney Point is to enjoy a ferry a trip, departing from Morston Quay with some trips offering the chance to land on Blakeney Point and visit the Lifeboat House.

Please note: nearest toilets are at Morston Quay and Blakeney Quay (not National Trust).

Seals on Blakeney Point

The grey seal pupping season will soon begin again on Blakeney Point around early November. A total of 2,426 pups were born last year making us the largest colony in England and we expect this to increase again this year.
