If you thought that there was no wilderness left in the south-east, come and have a look at Elmley Marshes! The two-mile drive across the vast wetlands, managed by the Elmley Conservation Trust, to get to the reserve car park is an amazing start to your visit, where from your car you can watch lapwings, redshanks, wigeon and birds of prey at close range.

How to get here


From junction 5 on the M2, follow the A249 to Sheerness. Take the road signposted Iwade and Ridham Dock. At the roundabout take the second exit onto the old road bridge. On the Isle of Sheppey, after 1.25 miles (2 km), turn right following RSPB sign. Follow the rough track for approximately 2 miles (3 km) to the carpark at Kingshill Farm.


Swale Halt (request stop), 3 miles (4.8 km) from reserve car park. From the station, walk alongside the A249 onto the Isle of Sheppey, turn right after 1 mile (1.5 km) where the reserve is signposted. Follow the rough track for 2 miles (3 km) to the car park at Kingshill Farm. NB. The reserve proper and first hide are about 1.5 miles (2.5 km) beyond this point.


Buses are very infrequent, travelling between Sittingbourne and the nearest stop for the reserve, Queensborough. This is 4 miles (6.4 km) away.
