If you are organising an event at Burnham Beeches or a visit for a group or school, you may need to apply for a licence. Licences are free, but can take up to a minimum of two weeks to arrange.

As a National Nature Reserve with some sensitive habitats and ancient monuments, there are areas which are out of bounds for certain activities so it important that we know what you are planning. This way we can use our knowledge of the reserve to help you get the most out of your activity.
