RSPB Old Moor is South Yorkshire’s best kept secret: a place to spot some wonderful nature, explore and discover with the kids or just walk around in peace and quiet. There’s lots to do as a family with our new sensory garden, our playground, wild play areas and pond dipping (Easter to October). Or, discover a hidden gem away from the hustle and bustle to enjoy nature and take a breather; you could even try our Natural Wellbeing trail. Stop off at the café for hot food, cake and enjoy a hot drink with a view on our balcony with stunning views across the reserve. Our shop sells a fantastic range of gifts for all ages, wrapping paper and cards and wildlife care products so you can create a nature haven in your own outdoor space and join us in giving nature a home.
Car parking is free.
Accessibility: Old Moor is on the Trans-Pennine Trail so is very accessible locally via foot or bike. Our paths are wheelchair and pushchair friendly and we have mobility scooters available to pre-book for your visit (free to use). We have accessible toilets and baby changing facilities. Dogs are welcome in the courtyard but not on the reserve itself.
RSPB membership: the wildlife conservation work of the RSPB is possible because of the financial support from our members. Members receive complementary free access to our 200+ nature reserves throughout the UK, including Old Moor, a quarterly magazine about the RSPB’s work and discounted ticket prices for our events.
