Take time to visit the wonderful Nature Reserve at Landguard. Covering approximately 33 hectares (81 acres) this shingle spit on the southern tip of Suffolk’s stunning coastline offers a variety of flora and fauna. Unusual and rare plants, migrating birds, military history and huge ships arriving and departing at Britain’s busiest container port.

The Nature Reserve is a designated Local Nature Reserve (LNR) due to its value to the local community and a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) because of its high wildlife conservation value, such as its rare vegetated shingle habitat and botanical species.

Enjoy a cycle ride along Route 51 (part of the National Cycle Network), take a stroll on the boardwalk around the ‘point’ with views of the estuary mouth, and don’t forget to bring your binoculars to spot rare and resident birdlife.
