Yorkshire Wildlife Trust – Spurn Discovery Centre

Welcome to the Spurn Discovery Centre

Visitor information

Dear visitors,

In response to the coronavirus our visitor centre is temporarily closed.

Thank you for your understanding.

Spurn is an internationally important nature reserve with sensitive, diverse and wildlife-rich habitats. Large numbers of people travel to Spurn every year to enjoy its unique landscape, heritage and wildlife.

Spurn is now a ‘tidal island’ with unpredictable tidal areas that can isolate the reserve from the mainland. Its extensive ‘human history’, including its former defence role, has also left a legacy of fascinating but derelict buildings and hidden structures.

At the Spurn Discovery Centre you will find all the information you need to help you make the most of your visit to this wonderful place; ensuring your adventure is inspiring, safe and enjoyable and playing your part in helping us to protect Spurn and its wildlife for the future.

Funding for the new build was provided by the Humber Gateway Offshore Wind Farm Community Fund and the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government through the Coastal Communities Fund.

Public opening times

Nature reserve: Open at all times*. Please visit the Spurn nature reserve page for latest information on tide times. Inclement weather may mean the reserve has to close on occasion. Again, please check the Spurn nature reserve page before you visit for the latest information.

Centre: The centre is open from 9am - 6pm from Saturday 20 July till Sunday 29 September.

Café: The café is open from 10am - 5pm with hot food served until 4pm.

Car park: Open dawn 'til dusk.
