I really enjoyed my time there. They are well prepared for different kinds of visitors. There is disabled parking as well as bike stand with the roof. Cafeteria upstairs offers tasty and affordable meals. Gift shop is well equipped and prices are quite reasonable. Footpaths look wheelchair accessible. They even have strollers for the toddlers. I can really recommend this place to the whole families as good way to spend some quality time.

Lovely visit. In North East wd never used have RSPB reserve on our doorstep. Saltholme is becoming lovely established wetlands and Reed beds. Right in the heart of Teesides Industrial hub. It's been good while since I was last at Saltholme but now I've got both my daughters in the Junior RSPB as I once was when I was only 10 was nice bring them to explore nature on their doorstep. Good adventure Park yo play in cafe and gift shop. Excellent reserve super facilities.
Lovely place to visit, plenty of walks around, and lots of birds to watch, also the seals further down the road. There is also a nice gift shop and cafe.Visited onWeekdayWait timeNo waitReservation recommendedNo
Visited Saltholme with my husband for the first time yesterday and was well worth the trip! Both of us were fairly new to birdwatching but a friendly volunteer named Beccah was amazing in giving us a rundown of what the RSPB do and more about Saltholme directly. The views were gorgeous and we were easily able to spot and identify many species in the few hours that we were there. Definitely somewhere we will be returning in the future!
My 1st visit. Its fantastic! Lovely visitor centre, great walks, views, species and hides
This is a great place for a short day out if you are a young family or a full day out if you are a keen bird watcher. We were impressed by the facilities there. The food in the cafe was good, staff all very friendly and welcoming. We have a daughter who is a wheelchair user, and there was nowhere we couldn't access. If I had a day to myself, I could easily take a packed lunch and a flask of tea and spend the day in one of the huts there. The variety in birds was good, but I'm no expert, so if you're an expert, then it might be worth a trip to prove me wrong. There were volunteers/staff around who were knowledgeable and happy to point out birds or wildlife of interest. Playground: There is a playground there but when we went it was being expanded so not in use at this time February 2023 Restrooms: Clean rest rooms and good disabled access too.
Amazing nature reserve where the RSPB's logo The Avocet can be seen. It is a distinctively-patterned black and white wader with a long up-curved beak that was once extinct in the UK. There are lovely walks of different lengths, with great viewing hides, loads for the wee ones to do and the main building has coffee shop and shop with all profits going to help protect our birds. You can see seals sun bathing nearby at Seal sands. The staff and volunteers couldn't have been nicer. Thank you.
Lovely place for a visit. Friendly staff,good choice of food in the cafe and well laid out to see wildlife.
Visit to the RSPB reserve, grey day but still worth a visit saw plenty of wildlife. Cafe is well worth a visit Restrooms: Very clean and well kept
