Attenborough is on the River Erewash delta where it meets the Trent. There is a designated conservation area, a Grade I listed church, Grade II listed houses and some residences from the 17th Century.
The Nature Reserve has ponds formed after gravel extraction along the Trent so creating a habitat for waterfowl and wild animals. Signed circular walks around the village and reserve cover everything from ½ to 5.5 miles. Within a 15 minute walk are the Nature Centre, a retail park and a range of pubs and cafés
