Passing visit but what we saw was impressive. The shop was full of bird related books and gift items to buy. The gallery space was great. We wish there was an area to sit with the dog otherwise we would of stayed longer to have a coffee.

I will never know what this place is like as the cafe doesn't have anywhere you can sit with your dog. This is the first non-dog friendly place we have come across after a week on holiday in Norfolk. Found a great cafe down the road instead

Worth visiting for many reasons. If you enjoy birdwatching, it's a must but if you're just liking North Norfolk this will appeal. A superbly designed eco-centre with views over the marshes this is a free attraction established by the Norfolk Wildlife Trust. Worth a visit if only to use the cafe. Wander into the optic centre for binoculars set up... More

A very good centre, lots of information and good facilities always busy......we called in today after a long walk around the marshes and along the much changed seashore after the surge tides of the Winter. We enjoyed refreshing coffee and tea and a delicious cake, they have a good range of tempting treats, and welcoming staff.....

Spent the day there, great location, great hides and a good cafe when the need arises which is close at hand. Plenty of species, marsh harrier collecting nesting material. Visited titchwell but prefer this site.

Spent a lovely afternoon at Norfolk Wildlife Trust Cley Marshes visitor centre. Visited the hides (£4.50 cost for ticket). Very informative and staff extremely helpful. WCs spotless. Great variety or very reasonably priced snacks and food on offer. Trying some cake is a must! Able to see Two Marsh Harriers and two Kites whilst there, plus an array of wading... More

This is a good visitors centre. Shame about the food. Good to look out over the reserve, especially if the weather is poor. Small shop with wildlife bit. Electronic screen tells you what birds are about.

Came here very early one morning and was first car in car park (which is open all hours) and walked six miles around Salhouse beach and Cley before heading back for a drink and some home made cake. Views from the resturaunt are stunning and it is highly recommended and all in a good cause
