Description

Brandon Marsh is a 200-acre nature reserve and Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) on the banks of the River Avon, near Coventry, and was opened by Sir David Attenborough in 1998. Once an active sand and gravel quarry, the site is now a tranquil series of pools and wetlands, with nature trails and seven bird hides. Depending on the time of your visit you could see migrating waders, breeding warblers or year-round residents like kingfisher, coot or moorhen or even an otter.

An Education Centre and a Sensory Garden are available on site, also a visitor centre, gift shop and tea room. Children's activities and other events run throughout the year.
