Spurn Safari (12 April)
About the event
Back by popular demand, the Spurn Safari has returned. Our famous Spurn Safari tour takes visitors on a memorable journey to Yorkshire’s very own ‘Land’s End’ aboard a specially adapted ex-military, 4x4 truck (‘Unimog’). Tales of the peninsula’s fascinating natural, military and maritime history complete the adventure, expertly told by our knowledgeable and friendly guides. The trip also includes a visit to the top of northern England’s tallest lighthouse - note only possible from 17th May, due to Covid-19 measures.
To keep our visitors and staff safe during the pandemic, we have made some changes to the tour and seating arrangements - please see details below. Spurn safaris are suitable for ages 4+ as children need to be able to sit independently and hold-on when travelling on the Unimog.
Price£22 (Adult) £10 (Child)
Additional booking informationBooking: Please book in advance using our online booking system. In line with GDPR, personal data will be held to support Track and Trace procedures only. We can seat up to 10 people, in a combination of group bubbles and individuals, in the Unimog vehicle. On arrival at the car park across the road from Spurn Discovery Centre, please give yourself plenty of time to walk along the road to the gate, where the Unimog is parked (approx. 300 metres, left out of the main car park). Please arrive at the Unimog 15 minutes before the tour is scheduled to leave. The tour leader will meet you at the vehicle and brief you on safety during the tour.
Seating arrangements: There are double and single seats available. Please let us know if you require a single seat. We will try to seat family and bubbles close together, although you may be on a single seat in order to accommodate your group. The seats are numbered and we will allocate you your own seat for the duration of the tour. We will allocate seat numbers on the day.
Hygiene: Enhanced cleaning is in place and the tour vehicle is cleaned before each trip. All guests over 11 years of age must wear a face covering (unless medically exempt) whilst on the vehicle or in any of the buildings on site. Hand gel is available to use on entry and exit from the vehicle. Guests are asked to remain in their seats at all times while the vehicle is moving.
Social distancing: Unless in a bubble please consider other guests and remain 1 metre+ apart.
Lighthouse and guided walk: The tour normally includes a visit to the lighthouse and a walk of approx. 1 mile. If you do not want to go up the lighthouse or on the walk, you can remain on the Unimog for a glorious view over the Point and the Humber Estuary. All guests over 11 years of age must wear a face covering (unless medically exempt) while inside the lighthouse.
Know before you go
There is a set of steps on board to help access the Unimog, so anyone who is able to use ‘normal stairs’ will be able to access the Unimog to go on the Safari.
What to bring
We have put a variety of measures in place to ensure you have a safe and enjoyable visit to Spurn National Nature Reserve and the Spurn Discovery Centre. Please bring a face covering. All guests over 11 years of age must wear a face covering (unless medically exempt) whilst on the vehicle or in any of the buildings on site.
Wrap up warm! Dress for the weather and wear sturdy footwear. You should have a good head for heights to go up the lighthouse (when the lighthouse reopens).
