Oare Marshes Nature Reserve Reviews & Ratings
Great for bird watching and photography. Very peaceful and tranquil. You can walk and take the dog for walking along the estuary all the way up to London or down to Dover if you have the time!!
An old fashioned nature reserve with basic facilities and plenty of wildlife to enjoy. Other than birds, it's a great site for dragonflies. We really enjoyed our visits here.
Went here for a walk with my famil and what a fantastic place, fresh air, peaceful and lots of wildlife. Final piece of road to the car park is a bit rough but as long as you are careful it's not a problem. Their are no public toilets.
Good place for bird watching. Small car park. No public toilets.
Great place to view the River Swale. Popular with bird Watchers.
