My kids loved their visit here. There were activities for them to do and staff were lovely, explaining about the birds and bugs and how we can help them in our own gardens.

Just down from the National Trust carpark at Flatford. Lovely small RSPB garden. Always something going on. Lovely wood sculptures. Plants to buy. New pond area. Staff always happy to chat and give advice. Listen out for the woodpeckers in the trees.

We walked around the gardens and were pleasantly surprised by the wood carvings and little odds and ends intermingled with the plants. It is very peaceful and quiet.
