Our coastal walks are a hidden gem - providing sights that will amaze. All with the natural habitat of our well known and favourite wildlife preserved. 


We offer activities for children and adults alike. From brand new ones such as "Geocache" treasure hunts and a bug zone to our SeaWatch hut, lookout and sandy beach there really is lots to do.


Our conservation upholds the natural habitat of Dunwich Heath and is vital to this area. The wildlife ranges from our famous Dartford warbler to red deer, ants, bees, porpoise, seals, owls and more.
