Welcome to Elmley, a national nature reserve and our family farm.

Elmley is a 3,300 acre estate based on an island in the Thames, situated away from the bustle of North Kent, just an hour from London.

A vast wilderness. The spectacular landscape, soul stirring skies and breath-taking wildlife provide a truly inspirational escape.

It is a very special place, and provides an extraordinary setting for a special event, weekend escape or simply to immerse yourself in nature for the day.

Opening hours

The Reserve is open for pre-booked day visits. Online bookings are open now.
