Stave Hill is the oldest urban nature reserve in the UK, a successor to the site near Tower Bridge founded by the Trust for Urban Ecology in 1976. The reserve provides habitats for resident and migrant birds including kingfishers and nightingales, and a striking counterpoint to Canary Wharf just across the river.
There will be pizza on Saturday evening and breakfast on Sunday morning.
Assemble and pitch tents during Saturday
Places strictly limited.
