Tophill Low Nature Reserve is located at Watton Carr, Driffield (YO25 9RH) and is a haven for bird and wildlife.

Following the success of our Summer & Autumn holiday programme, we hope to be offer Easter 2021 holiday dates for our 2-hour workshops where you can learn about nature and take part in activities such as hunting for mini beasts and pond dipping.

Here’s our film from the Autumn workshops, where our education advisers will tell you more:

To comply with current safety guidelines, these sessions are pre-bookable only, and attendance will be limited to five family ‘bubbles’. Each bubble should consist of no more than six people (adults or children) and should have a minimum of one adult and one child in the group.

All safety precautions will be in place and social distancing will be in operation between family groups.

If you are taking part in our family workshops, there will be no entrance fee to the reserve. Any visitors staying on after the session to explore the reserve further are welcome to do so.  If you wish to make a donation towards your visit, please do so by purchasing a ticket from ticket machine on site, as our site team are unable to handle cash at the present time.

We hope our next family workshops will take place during the Easter holidays - providing the Reserve is open and we are able to operate these sessions in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
