Lyndon Visitor Centre

Lyndon Visitor Centre, Rutland Water Nature Reserve, Lyndon Rd, Manto, Rutland, LE15 8RN, United Kingdom


Lyndon Visitor Centre is one of two visitor centres at Rutland Water Nature Reserve. Located on the South Shore of the Reserve, it was opened by Sir David Attenborough in 1985 and offers the birdwatcher, wildlife enthusiast or first time visitor the opportunity to experience this peaceful spot with stunning views across the water. Since then it has undergone a complete face-lift and now boasts new displays on Weather and Wildlife.

Away from the Centre a self-guided trail leads visitors through a variety of habitats ranging from old and newly created woodland to ponds full of aquatic life and seven birdwatching hides. Since 2007 a breeding pair of Ospreys have nested on the reserve. and our bespoke osprey viewing hide, with volunteers on hand every day affords spectacular views of these magnificent birds throughout the summer months and for 2020 it will be open daily until the end of October.

Permits purchased at Lyndon Visitor Centre are also valid at the Anglian Water Birdwatching Centre, where it is possible to access the rest of the 30 plus hides here at the nature reserve.
