RSPB St Aidan's Nature Park

Historic Site/Structure, Animal-Centred Attraction, Attraction, Natural Feature, Garden/Environmental Attraction, Museum/Heritage/Gallery/Visitor Centre


Just a stone’s throw from the centre of Leeds, St Aidan’s nature park is a stunning place to explore. Whether you’re on foot, on your bike or have your camera at the ready, take advantage of the amazing views and wonderful wildlife spectacles on offer.

St Aidan’s was an opencast mine for many years and it has now been restored to this wonderful nature park for everyone to enjoy. Four trails lead you through woodland glades, alongside whispering reedbeds, around lakes and ponds, and onto a hill with stunning panoramic views.

St Aidan’s is a fabulous spot to bring the family. There’s plenty of space to explore, bring your bikes and run around. It’s early days for St Aidan’s. We’re just setting out on our journey. We’d love to share it with you.
