The Thames Water region boasts some rather beautiful places to visit and with the long weekend ahead set for warmer temperatures, now is the perfect time to visit one of our many sites.

 

I’ve made it even easier for you by picking my top five, in no particular order, that provide something slightly different, and all make for a lovely day out.

 

My first recommendation is Walthamstow Wetlands, in North London. Walthamstow Wetlands is a large complex of reservoirs of international importance for birds, offering extensive coarse and fly-fishing opportunities. It’s a lovely place to get the steps in too– especially if the sun is out.

 

A few bits to help you plan your day:

 

  • Open to the public,
  • Car park
  • Toilets
  • Refreshments available
  • Accessible for people mobility difficulties

 

For more info, visit here.

A few bits to help you plan your day:

 

  • Open to the public – 9.00 – 16.30
  • Café
  • Toilets
  • Accessible

My third tip is Crossness Nature Reserve - it’s open exclusively for members and is part of the last remaining grazing marsh in London with accessible trail and bird viewing facilities, alongside the River Thames. 

 

A few bits to help you plan your day:

 

  • Open for members only
  • Toilets
  • Accessible for people mobility difficulties
  • There isn’t a café so don’t forget to think about lunch plans!

My fifth and final tip is one of my favourite reservoirs, Farmoor.  Its site is next to the River Thames, in the beautifully tranquil countryside near Oxford. It offers award-winning trout fishing and excellent bird watching spots with some rather scenic views to enjoy too.
