Berry Head National Nature Reserve is one of the gateways to the English Riviera Global Geopark.

It is an internationally-acclaimed heritage site, home to a fascinating variety of wildlife and history, with recently restored Napoleonic-War fortifications. Standing proud at the southern tip of Tor Bay the impressive limestone promontory of Berry Head, with its 60 metre (200 feet) high cliffs has for centuries offered shelter and protection to wildlife, people and nation.

Impressive Napoleonic forts

The long, limestone promontory of Berry Head has long played an important role protecting our nation. From Iron Age forts to impressive Napoleonic buildings and the modern day lighthouse and coastguard station, Berry Head has a wealth of history to explore.

Enjoy the stunning views and superb local food at the new Guardhouse Cafe, visit the Visitor Centre or one of the events, and walk the ramparts as the soldiers did 200 years ago.
