The RSPB Nature Discovery Centre near Thatcham, Berkshire, gives you the chance to get close to nature. Children love to spot wildlife, follow the trails, and play in the playground. Enjoy some family time in the tranquility of this wonderful setting.


The RSPB says about its Nature Discovery Centre:

"The Nature Discovery Centre is teeming with wildlife, with its rich mix of open water, grassland, species-rich hedgerows, ponds, streams, mature trees and specially-protected areas of reedbeds – which in fact comprise the largest continual area of this kind of natural, unspoilt habitat in Europe. So, a local and national speciality!

Whether you enjoy cycling, dog walking, feeding the ducks, pond dipping or simply playing or resting, the Nature Discovery Centre is a local haven for all visitors.

Kids love our interactive and child-friendly visitor centre and shop - with lots of hands-on equipment and facilties. We offer holiday and weekend activity sessions, picnic areas, circular walks and bird feeding areas. They'll have a great time in our Infant and Junior adventure playgrounds."
