For by 1972 the RSPB had acquired the marshes
around here and Titchwell Reserve came into being. The Titchwell Reserve
is one of the most popular reserves in Norfolk situated on a large site
with a mixture of habitats including fen and marshes, reedbeds and tidal
This reserve attracts many birds including waders and dabbling duck while shallow lagoons provide a site for winter geese and grazing duck. Titchwell RSPB Reserve has a number of hides and several trails and even offers binoculars for hire at its visitors centre. Beyond the managed nature reserve there is a more extensive area of fields and saltings and it is possible to walk out to fine extensive firm shimmering sands, which stretch as far as the eye can see, with rolling white horses breaking on the shore.
The attractive church of St. Mary the Virgin has an eleventh century round tower. In the village are two good restaurants - Briarfields, that serves a range of locally sourced seafood and meats and the restaurant at Titchwell Manor, renowned for its food.
For golf enthusiasts there is the Royal West Norfolk Golf course at Brancaster.
