Blow away the cobwebs with a bracing walk along the cliff top path, and you can see across to the Isle of Man on a clear day. In spring and summer, you'll want to stop at our three viewpoints to marvel at the largest seabird colony in north-west England. Guillemots, kittiwakes, fulmars and razorbills wheel noisily overhead, while ravens and peregrines are often seen soaring along the cliffs. Offshore, you can also see skuas and shearwaters and if you are lucky you may spot dolphins and porpoises.
Open at all times.
Free, but donations to help us continue our work here are welcome.
Dogs are only allowed on public footpaths and bridleways
Note: Some reserves are not served directly by public transport and, in these cases, a nearby destination (from which you may need to walk or take a taxi or ferry) may be offered.
