Explore the exhibits at the visitor’s center to understand the animals that regularly stop at the sanctuary. The reserve sprawls for more than 40 hectares (100 acres) so enjoy a walk along its many paths. Along the way get close to ducks and other birds or dip your nets into the wetlands and see what creatures you can find. Visit the native plants in their natural gardens. If it’s a rainy day, participate in some of the planned activities at the Visitor’s Center.

  • Wonderful oasis in the heart of SW London. Particularly child friendly with lots to see and do - often with special exhibits dotted around the centre. Playground is perfect for the 2-7 age range and during the summer months includes a water play area. Cafe serves nice food and leaves a choice of indoor outdoor seating.
  • Wonderful place even for a non bird-enthusiast. Nice open nature, really diverse wildlife. I do recommend coming here on a nice sunny day, I think that helps a lot.
  • A really cool nature reserve/walk. There are little huts where you can bird watch. Could easily spend the day there. There is a canteen which could get a little busy
  • If you are into birding, this is a must go place. Our children get a little bored after a couple of hours but there's a boat ride and some simple activities. Excellent collection of wildfowl and helpful volunteers to add value.
  • Lovely place to visit. Especially with young children or if you are a bird watcher. Great day out in London.

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
