Use your smartphones on our Audio Trail throughout the Park.
We have created an Audio Trail throughout the Park that you can access using your SmartPhones. You'll see a number of QR codes located around - scan them with your phone and you will be able to listen to some information on the Burrows and the actual site you're standing on. You can also have a listen by clicking on the files below.
In case you haven't seen them before, this is an example of a QR code:
If you scan it with your SmartPhone it should open up the Grey Sand Hill audio file for you to listen to.
The Northam Burrows is a Site of Special Scientific Interest. It is about 253 hectares of grassy coastal plain with salt marsh, sand dunes and generally unimproved grasslands.
The Burrows provides one of the access points for the two miles of Westward Ho! Beach, thus combining the best of opportunities for land and marine leisure activities. The main ramped access point to the beach is available from the town of Westward Ho!
The Park is open to pedestrians at all times but there are restrictions on vehicles. The Burrows Centre is open from the end of May to early September and the toilet facilities from Easter to the end of October.
