RSPB Old Moor is South Yorkshire’s best kept secret: a place to spot some wonderful nature, explore and discover with the kids or just walk around in peace and quiet.  There’s lots to do as a family with the new sensory garden, playground, wild play areas, discovery backpacks and toddler trail. Or, discover a hidden gem away from the hustle and bustle to enjoy nature and take a breather; you could even try the Natural Wellbeing trail. 

Stop off at the café for hot food, cake and enjoy a hot drink with a view on RSPB’s balcony with stunning views across the reserve. The shop sells a fantastic range of gifts for all ages, cards and wildlife care products so you can create a nature haven in your own outdoor space.

Car parking is free.

Made possible by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
