Take a look at our events calendar, there is always something going on including guided walks, wildlife courses, evening strolls in the summer and in winter join us for evening talks and classes.

New members and visitors are always welcome, but please note that Sandwich Bay Estate charge £1 at the tollgate for non-members, simply inform the staff at the gate that you are visiting us for the reduced entry fee (one of the conditions is that you must leave the same way you came in, not use it as a short-cut to Deal!) Please note that membership cards and toll charge permit access to the SBBOT Field Centre only, not the Estate or Beach. Mobile security will find transgressors and that harms our relationship with the estate, so please be mindful. Moreover, a numberplate recognition system is installed and will soon be operating with the power to fine people who abuse the concession. If you join up for membership of SBBOT and visit once every two weeks, the £1 fees alone would cover membership, not bad given all the other advantages! For the able-bodied it is a short walk from the observatory to the beach.

If you are visiting our reserves or recording area please take note of our Invertebrate Collecting and Disturbance to Wildlife policies (all policies available on request)
