What's on at Orford Ness National Nature Reserve

If you cannot find a suitable event below, visit the Ness on a normal open day for a self-guided tour. In 2017 we are open from 15 April - 24 June, Saturdays only; 27 June – 30 September, Tuesday – Saturday; 7 - 28 October, Saturdays only. Access to Orford Ness is by National Trust ferry from Orford Quay. Our foot ferry crosses to the Ness every 20 minutes between 10am and 2pm only, returning regularly through the day. The last ferry leaves the Ness at 5pm. Tickets are limited and sold on the day only so please arrive early to avoid disappointment, especially at busy times. The main visitor trail (Red Route) is always available, other routes open seasonally. Please note that on-line bookings will not be possible until February/March 2017 - check this page again for the latest information.
