What to expect when you visit
PLEASE NOTE: We are now closed for the season and would like to thank all our customers for their support. We genuinely enjoy meeting you all and welcoming you to Sumburgh Head. You can still visit all the outside areas as the Nature Reserve is open all year round. All indoor areas, including the Visitor Centre, Cafe and Customer Toilets will re-open in 2021.
Since March we've been working hard to make sure that your visit will still be safe and enjoyable. Your safety and comfort are our top priority and we want to make sure that all our visitors can enjoy a safe visit, while still experiencing everything that we have to offer.
We have new procedures for social distancing, hygiene, and visitor interaction. Read on to learn about how your visit will be affected. Please note that these safety procedures may change according to government guidance and as the situation progresses.
