The Attenbourough Nature Centre was opened by Sir David Attenborough in 2005. The centre is set in the Attenborough Nature Reserve; home to a huge variety of land and water creatures.
Best known for its birds, the Attenborough Nature Reserve is frequented by a variety of ducks, sawbills, sea ducks and cormorants. It is common for migrant birds to make use of the habitat during spring and autumn. During the summer breeding season it is usual to see common tern, shelduck, little ringed plover and the great crested grebe. There have also been sightings of some rare species such as the grasshopper warbler.
Guided walks of the site are available, as is a bird-watching area.
The Nature Centre is accessible to wheelchair users, as are the toilet facilities. There is a cafe and gift shop on site.
The reserve is six miles from Nottingham, and is accessible by car, bus and train.
