Situated at Nell's Point looking out over the Bristol Channel and beyond.

Nells Point Coastwatch station is the first NCI station established on the Welsh coast and is built on the site of a derelict coast guard station.

Visitors are most welcome at the lookout and exhibition centre most Sunday afternoons, although when an incident is ongoing, this may not always be convenient and the duty watchkeeper may ask visitors to call back later. 

Please ring ahead to the Duty Watchkeeper to check opening times.
