Set in 2,400 acres of Cambridgeshire countryside, Grafham Water is a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest.

A unique site as a hot bed for nightingale populations and a base for research into their movements, we are hugely privileged to be allowed onto the area to host these events. There is an internationally important project tagging nightingales underway here pioneered by the British Trust for Ornithology, with 2017 set to be a year of great learning; finding out where the birds we are listening to have travelled from and the incredible journeys they undertake.

Grafham reservoir was created in the 1960s and the nature reserve here is the 'youngest' site for our ornithological duets. It is home to a thriving wildlife population. The site encompasses woodland, grassland, wetland, and marginal habitats, making it the perfect arena to commune with all manner of creatures - not least the nightingale.

Grafham Water is owned by Anglian Water and the nature reserve managed by the Wildlife Trust for Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Northamptonshire. Follow the link below to find out more about their work.


BY CAR: Grafham Water is off the M11 near Huntingdon, usually under 2 hours journey from London.

PUBLIC TRANSPORT: Huntingdon Station is on a direct line from Finsbury Park Station, with the site a short taxi journey from there.

Unfortunately, public transport links for the return journey late at night are not so strong. If you are interested in pre-booking shared taxi travel after your event, please let us know by checking the box at checkout. Alternatively, we will also be working local partners to provide accommodation. Please let us know at checkout if you are interested in this.
