What to do
The Visitor Centre caters for both anglers and Nature Reserve visitors. Lots of new lines of stock for the coarse anglers have been added including Korda, Solar, Nash, Gardner and the ever popular range of Sticky Baits. We also stock a range of goods related to the Nature Reserve from quality bird feeders and boxes to bird feed and a range of gift items.
The Nature Reserve is a wonderful haven for wildlife and visitors can enjoy nature walks and pond dipping and view the wildlife from good quality hides. We have introduced a range of activities over the season for children from Easter Egg Trails to Halloween Haunts and bug hunts druing the school holidays.
Coarse fishing is available at Taverham Lake and nearby there are several newer gravel pits at Costessey which are stocked with Carp. Lake number 2 at Costessey is also used for waterskiing during the summer.
