With great comments such as: “a great place at all times of the year - a great place, nice cafe, great scones and fabulous views,” “it’s free to get in and you can spend 30 minutes or 6 hours there, it’s up to you” to “this should be the top thing to do in the Amble area” being left on the TripAdvisor website, the Centre staff are over the moon to have received the award for the second year running.

The Trip Advisor Award is a great start to the 2019 summer season for the Wildlife Discovery Centre, which has received a whole host of awards since it opened two years ago.

Speaking about the Trip Advisor Award, Jenna Berry, Hauxley Visitor Experience Assistant said: “This Award is yet another testimony to the continued hard work of all the staff and volunteers who work here. 

“Our Lookout Café has received great reviews, especially our seasonal scones which are made on the premises every day by Christine and the team. When it comes to flavours - you name it, they have made it, from toffee apple, pine needle and chocolate and raspberry to ham and leek, cheese and chorizo and brie and grape they are getting quite a following and sell out very quickly. 

“So, why not come and meet us, have tea and a scone in the café and enjoy what is a truly wonderful reserve… whatever the weather.”

The Wildlife Discovery Centre was opened in 2017 and was made possible thanks to money raised by National Lottery players through a grant of £522,600 from The National Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF).

To celebrate the Trip Advisor award, the café is offering 40p off any hot drink for any member of the public using their own, or the Trust’s reusable cups.
