SUMBURGH HEAD RE-OPENED IN 2021
Our Visitor Centre re-opened during 2021 and is now closed for the winter. We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who came to visit Sumburgh Head during our 2021 season; it was great to welcome back returning visitors and meet so many first-time visitors to our centre.
The Nature Reserve and car park is open all year round. The Visitor Centre, including the gift shop, museum, cafe and customer toilets will re-open in 2022.
