Titchfield Haven

National Nature ReserveAn image of Titchfield Haven

Titchfield Haven National Nature Reserve is a well-known birdwatching site managed by Hampshire County Council. It covers 369 acres of the Lower Meon Valley and contains a variety of wetland habitats, some of which have become rare in lowland Britain. The reserve is managed primarily for birds but it also has rare flora including rarities such as slender bird's-foot-trefoil, frogbit and marsh mallow. It is also home to foxes, deer, dragonflies (19 species have been recorded) and butterflies. You can see birds at close range, in one of the many 'hides'.

There is something to see all year round:

Winter - there are huge numbers of wildfowl which return here to escape the cold of their northern breeding grounds
Spring - listen to the wide range of birdsong and watch the swallows and other summer visitors
Summer - view the colourful wetland plants and dragonflies
Autumn - watch out for the first migrant waders and wildfowl.

Opening times

Open seven days a week, including Bank Holidays (not 25th or 26th December) 9.30am - 5pm (summer) and 9.30am - 4pm (winter).

You can buy tickets from the information desk in the Titchfield Haven Visitor Centre. You will be given a dated coloured sticker to be displayed on your clothing or equipment. The reserve is checked regularly and you will be asked to show your ticket. Toilets (including those with access for wheelchairs), a tea room, a shop, an exhibition and activities for children are in the Titchfield Haven Visitor Centre. Groups are welcomed but please make an advance booking.
