About Us

The Natural World Centre is located within Whisby Nature Reserve. The nature Reserve offers walks which include lake views, woodland and meadows extending to around 6.5 miles. Routes follow former gravel-pit tracks reflecting the industrial heritage of the site. All but a small proportion are hard-surfaced for all-weather use. Coloured arrows on recycled plastic waymarkers guide visitors safely around the reserve. Along the way there are over 30 seats and 6 bird hides, which contain wildlife information according to the seasons. You can collect a trail guide, showing the different walks available, from reception in the Natural World Centre.

Please note any groups of over 15 will need to apply for a permit through the LWT Wardens. Please call 01522 500676 for more information.

Please note that cycling is not permitted within the Nature Reserve. However you can hire cycle storage from inside the centre for a small fee. Please ask at reception or call 01522 688868 for more information.
