Window On Wildlife (WOW) Belfast

If you’ve never visited the RSPB’s nature reserve in the heart of industrial Belfast then prepared to be WOWed! The newly refurbished Window on Wildlife ( WOW ) offers stunning views of the wide variety of birds and wildlife which call the reserve home. Friendly staff and volunteers are always on hand to help you identify what you see! Two new hides have been constructed from shipping containers to tie in with their industrial surroundings and the visitor centre now features a community room and refreshment area, as well as information on the rich history of the harbour and the formation of the reserve back in 1998.
Free entry for RSPB members. £3 for adults and £1.50 for concessions.
