Details

The Nature Reserve is a fantastic spacious landscape with salt marshes, sand and shingle spit, sand dunes and horizons stretching far out to sea.
Blakeney Point is home to a colony of Common and Grey seals that are here most of the year round and can be seen from any of the ferry boat trips that leave from Morston Quay.
The Nature Reserve is internationally recognised as an important breeding area for sea birds and a wide variety of other birdlife that changes with the seasons.
The Point has the distinctive Lifeboat house that provides an insight to the history of the point and is also where the National Trust wardens live and work to protect and conserve the wildlife and landscape.
The salt marshes supports an interesting range of seaside plants creating an intriguing habitat and surroundings for refreshing long or short walks for all visitors.
The Visitor Centre at Morston Quay provides further details on the area's attractions and a useful information point for visitors to get an understanding of the work the National Trust is undertaking to preserve and manage the Nature Reserve.
