Pond dipping at Greystones

(C) Anne-Marie Randall

GWT coronavirus update: during this difficult time, we know how important it is to get outdoors for fresh air, exercise and to immerse yourself in nature.
Please help us keep our outdoor spaces open to everyone for as long as possible by:

Maintaining social distancing – please avoid being within two metres of other visitors and avoid gathering in groups at play equipment, view points, and seating areas.

The cafe at Greystones is now open! We are serving tasty treats and a cracking cuppa between 10am and 4pm Thursday through Sunday. Please do pop in and say hello! We are serving take-away style from the hatch to maintain our staff and customer safety; there is outside seating available, or you are welcome to take your food and drinks for a picnic but please leave no trace! The toilets are also open whenever the cafe is open.

Greystones is one of the most important nature reserves in the country and provides a great day out for families. We carefully manage the land to ensure that wildflowers thrive and we are proud that Greystones is nationally recognised because of this. Our hay meadows support a stunning range of wildlife and wildflowers in the spring and summer.
