Frampton Marsh Nature Reserve

Frampton March is a family-friendly nature reserve run by the RSPB. It’s a coastal wetland area overlooking The Wash and is located on the A16 between Boston and Kirton.

Great for bird-watchers and walkers alike, Frampton Marsh Nature Reserve can boast miles of spectacular scenery, nature trails and accessible footpaths.

With free admission, a picnic area and plenty of children’s activities (including games and Wildlife Explorer Backpacks), Frampton Marsh is the perfect place for a family day out. You can even bring your pooch along – Frampton Marsh is dog-friendly, although dogs are not allowed in the bird-watching areas.

Friendly rangers are always available between the hours of 10am and 4 pm to give help and advice.
