Berry Head National Nature Reserve

A haven for rare and threatened species, Berry Head is home to one of the largest colonies of Guillemots on England's south coast. The Visitor Centre lets you watch them on CCTV and there are also many other migrant birds that come to the reserve.

The limestone peninsular, which forms the southern arm of Tor Bay, is home to two Napoleonic-era forts as well as gardens rich with wild flowers from May to August and caves that house horseshoe bats.

Even on an overcast and windy day, an interesting walk. Good visitor centre.

Berry Head Nature Reserve

As well as being an area of special scientific interest ( SSI ) the reserve has recently undergone an upgrading by the reserve management and now has excellent explanatory boards to make your visit more rewarding. There is also a superb cafe on the headland.

Top Spot

Napoleonic buildings, rare rock roses and orchids, plus a bird hide and cameras to record the very special Guillemots that nest on the cliffs. There is a new visitor centre opened in 2009, a cafe and parking. It has just received 1.8 million pounds of funding to make this a top place to visit.
