We knew of the local feelings about this place from previous visits and this was our first return visit following the opening. We can see both sides of the argument and if pressed we would rather the place had not been built. It's purpose would...More

I visited this centre for the first time and was impressed so much I will return throughout the seasons. I know Spurn quite well but have not been for a couple of years. Spurn has been “crying out” for a centre like this and I...More

Food is ok but not up to the standard of Potteric Carr which is also YWT. Staff aren't the same and are not as friendly either since they moved from the Bluebell.

Very nice wildlife and natural history spot. Great visitor centre and cafe. Be aware that you can't take your dog onto the reserve and also take coins for the £5.00 car park fee!

£5 to park I feel was excessive. However, what a smashing little Cafeteria. The food was freshly prepared, the staff were exceptionally friendly and the place allowed under control dogs. The thing I must comment on and highly recommend is the Dandelion and Burdoch Cake...More

I was really disappointed with this centre. We arrived at 4pm, paid £5 for parking and even though closing time was 5pm, everything looked shut. No one to welcome anyone, say hello etc. Couldn't really see much educational value. Seemed a bit style over substance....More
