A former quarry-turned-nature-reserve, the Attenborough Nature Reserve is home to countless species of rare animals and bird species.

With its award winning visitor centre, opened by Sir David Attenborough himself, the reserve is perfect for a day out in the wilderness, just a ten minute train ride from the heart of Nottingham.

Picnic in one of the bird hides and keep an eye out for bird life, or find a spot on the banks of the River Trent and watch the narrow boat traffic chug by.
