Sevenoaks Wildlife Reserve

A pioneering nature reserve which has a roughly equal proportions of water and land. It includes five lakes and a mixed habitat of ponds, seasonal flooded pools, reedbed and woodlands.

It is a spectacular site for birds, but the reserve’s wetland and woodland habitats also support a diverse community of plants, fungi and other animals. So far well over two thousand species have been identified and more are regularly being added to the list.

The visitor centre houses displays illustrating the prehistory and history of the site, the creation of the reserve, its habitats and the wildlife that they support. There are touch tables where visitors can handle all sorts of ‘treasures’ including birds nests, feathers and thirty thousand year old mammoth teeth.

The gift shop sells nature books, bird food and feeders and there is a small tea bar.

This wonderful site consists of five stunning lakes, a mixture of habitats including ponds, seasonally flooded pools, reedbed and woodland. A spectacular site for birds, the wetland and woodland habitats also support a diverse community of plants, fungi and animals.

Of particular interest for visiting groups is the tranquil Elemental Garden, where much of the teaching for younger groups takes place. A large yurt offers an interesting undercover teaching space and there are additional teaching areas within the Visitor Centre. The Centre itself houses a range of engaging wildlife displays and touch tables. The site has toilet facilities and a small tea bar.

Coaches can drop off groups at the entrance to the yurt and on-site parking is available.

Sessions available at Sevenoaks include:

Story Days (‘Explore a Story’)
