Warburg Nature Reserve near Henley

Warburg Nature Reserve, a couple of miles north of Henley on thames, is a magnificent place for its wild, remote tranquility.


Great for families - with a visitor centre, bird hides, picnic area and resident warden to help with queries, Warburg Nature Reserve is a great place to bring your family. There are even wildlife explorer packs you can borrow to help you explore.

Seasonal highlights:

Warburg is home to an incredible range of habitats sheltering thousands of species, and each season there is something interesting to experience.

In Spring, the woodland is awash with spectacular bluebells and wood anemones.

In Summer the reserve has a dawn chorus second to none. The wide sunny rides and open glades of chalk grassland are full of summer flowers, including pyramidal orchid and swathes of aromatic wild marjoram and thyme.

These are followed by Autumn and Chiltern gentians and glorious colours throughout the tree canopy, while down below, an incredible 900 species of fungi grow.

In Winter, you can enjoy magical frost along the valley bottom.
