National Nature Reserve and Visitor Centre

Access for those with disabilities

Continual improvements are being made to ensure that visitors with disabilities can enjoy a visit to the reserve. We advise that wheelchair users are accompanied.

There are accessible toilets in the Centre, access to the Tea Room is either by path around the outside of the building or through the Centre itself and the shop, children's activities and exhibition areas are all on the ground floor.

Access to the hides

  • Access to the Meadow and Suffern and Knights Bank hides is via paths and boardwalks which may get muddy in a few places after heavy rain.
  • Access to the Meon Shore and Pumfrett hides is via a level path. Doors to the hides push sideways on runners and may sometimes stick!
  • The path to the Spurgin Hide is currently rather rutted so do take care. Improvements are planned over the next twelve months. There are lower level windows in the hides, except for the Spurgin Hide.

Car parking

Three parking spaces for badge holders behind the Visitor Centre. Access is via Cliff Road. There is a short path and ramp into the Visitor Centre.

Free car park by Hill Head Sailing Club or on the seafront.

Coach or minibus parking

Drivers must drop off in the Sailing Club car park. The vehicle will need to go to the free parking area near the Stubbington Community Centre. Coaches can usually reverse into the car park to turn and drive back along Cliff Road to Stubbington. NB The road is narrow.
