Details

Big skies and ever changing wildlife make the evocative landscape of Spurn one of the Trust’s most iconic nature reserves. Whether you go by foot, bike or aboard a Spurn Safari (sorry – no vehicular access down to the Point) visiting is always an adventure.

Spurn is truly a site for all seasons, but arguably one of its best wildlife highlights is the spring and autumn spectacle of bird migration. Due to the exposed and recognisable coastal location, visible migration can be often be seen in action as birds head south along the peninsula, on some days you may see ‘falls’ of birds measured in their thousands.

Parking
The Public car park for Spurn is now the new pay and display car park on the opposite side of the road to the Discovery Centre. There are up to 74 spaces, approximately a 5 minute walk away from the reserve entrance. A separate coach parking area is available for up to 2 coaches. This is located opposite the car park, adjacent to the Centre.
The car park is locked at dusk, reopening at dawn. No overnight parking is available.
