If you are planning on travelling distance to attractions, we would recommend that you contact the venues directly in advance to avoid disappointment.

If you, or any of your party have a new persistant cough, or develop a fever of 38C, we would instead advise you to use the NHS's dedicated website for professional advice.

RSPB Dee Estuary - Burton Mere Wetlands Reserve

Wildfowl and wading birds in winter, warblers in spring, vast panoramas and a fascinating history are just some of the highlights from Burton Mere Wetlands. Straddling the border between England and Wales, this is a unique landscape. Many years of hard work have restored reedbeds, fenland and farmland.
Our reception building is open between 9.30 am and 5 pm. The reserve is open between 9 am and 9 pm, or dusk if sooner.
Adult £4; concession £3; child £2 (under-5s free and first child of family goes free). RSPB members get in for free.
Burton Mere Wetlands is perfect if you're new to birdwatching, as the entire reserve has been designed to get you closer to nature. It has relaxed, modern facilities with excellent access for people of all abilities.
No dogs allowed, except registered assistance dogs
