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

Over the summer months, we are delighted to offer a programme of 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 education advisers to tell you more:

To comply with current safety guidelines, these sessions are pre-bookable only, and attendance will be limited to four 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.
