Explore the wheel-friendly trails of RSPB Titchwell Marsh nature reserve in Norfolk, with accessTOG ambassador Debbie North as your guide.

The Norfolk coastline is known as the birdwatching capital of England, and it’s easy to see why. Located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the RSPB’s Titchwell Marsh reserve is a fantastic location to roam amongst the saltmarshes and dunes – and is totally wheelchair accessible.

Once part of Norfolk’s sea defences, Titchwell Marsh is now home to resident and migrant seabirds and a plethora of marine life. There are freshwater lagoons, saltmarshes, woodlands and wide sandy beaches to explore, with fabulous views across the Wash.

The bird hides are also wheel-friendly, making this a great place to watch and photograph wildlife.

We started our walk at the visitor centre and followed the Fen Trail through the woodland that leads to the first of the bird hides. The Fen Hide looks out across the reeds and has been designed as a family-friendly hide, with activity tables for children and lots of information on what wildlife you’re likely to see from this viewpoint.

The West Bank path leads out towards the sea and to the large bird hides – the South Hide looking over the freshwater lagoon and the North Hide over to the saltmarshes. This path leads down to the beach, which is just over half a mile away from the visitor centre.

Deb’s verdict
Allow yourself plenty of time to explore Titchwell Marsh, as there’s so much to see. The paths are good, well maintained and ideal for any type of wheelchair.
