The High Weald has numerous nature reserves owned by organisations such as the National Trust, RSPB, Woodland Trust and Forestry Commission.

The sites are free to visit and welcome the public. They have a good path network and places to stop and watch wildlife. Beyond a car park facilities tend to be limited. There is often an information board: site leaflets are best downloaded before a visit.
