Cafe at Attenborough Nature Centre


disabled access

A busy cafe within Attenborough Nature Reserve's 'floating' Nature Centre, built on a peninsula, complete with drawbridge, opened by Sir David Attenborough in 2005.

The cafe serves hot drinks, cakes, snacks and light lunches. Seating is in a light indoor space, or outside on a terrace overlooking the lake.

The cafe shares the Nature Centre's public space with a children's discovery area and shop, so visitors can learn something about the reserve's wildlife and buy some bird food to feed to its residents.

Open 9am - 4pm daily in winter, 9-5pm on weekdays and 9-6pm at weekends from late March. Last orders are 30 minutes before closing.

Access to the Reserve, 7am-dusk.
Hides open 9am - 4pm.
Parking £2 donation.
Assistance Dogs Only in the Centre.

The nature reserve, established in 1966, is designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest and is managed by Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust, who run frequent events, volunteering and educational activities here.
