One of our resident rangers will meet you from the boat and lead you on a walk on Brownsea, making time to experience the autumnal bird spectacles of migrating and returning visitors on the lagoon. Afterwards, head to our harbourside cafe where you will be greeted with a warming cuppa and a breakfast roll. Ticket price includes boat ride, walk and breakfast.
