Part of the Lee Valley Regional Park, the Waterworks Nature Reserve is a beautiful and tranquil spot only a few miles from the centre of London built on the site of a former Waterworks that was closed down in the seventies.

It has a picnic spot, a number of viewing platforms and boasts one of the largest bird hides in London, allowing you to sit at leisure and watch the local wildlife. Its a great place for kids with information boards detailing what you might see. It is very well maintained and is an ideal picnic spot on a sunny day or a nice place to have a gentle ramble following a number of self guiding trail maps that are available at the Waterworks Visitor entre reception that also has a small local wildlife and ecology exhibition. This is a real hidden treasure that really should be visited if you have the opportunity and with the Pitch and Putt course right next door you have a ready made day out.
