WWT Slimbridge Wetland Centre, Slimbridge

Must see · Nature / Park · Wildlife Area
Explore 324 hectares (800 acres) of world-class wetlands set against the backdrop of the Severn Estuary. WWT Slimbridge Wetland Centre is home to a wealth of resident and migratory wildlife from all over the world. Take a guided walk to learn more about the Slimbridge Wetlands, its history, the center's conservation work, and the wildlife. Tours take place once a day, so check the events board when you arrive at the center to find out where and when to meet. Be sure to also check times for talks and special events taking place, such as otter talks and the wild bird feed. Get up close to the birds and pick up some grain to offer them at exhibits where feeding is permitted. The Water Edge restaurant is an ideal place to relax after your walk around the grounds. The restaurant offers views of the Caribbean flamingos and, weather permitting, the picnic tables on the terrace allow you to get even closer to them. Binoculars can be hired from the reception, and you can visit the In Focus Shop on site if you’d like to purchase your own equipment.

  • Amazing place. We thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon at Slimbridge. Lots of parking. The canoe ride was great fun and a nice change. Nice selection of ducks, geese, swans etc....Didn't manage to see...  more »
  • Always a good day out (just a shame everyone doesn't know how to social distance)
  • Good place for a quiet chill out, but can prove expensive especially for families
  • It has become rather commercial which is disappointing. But wonderful birds! I think it is now geared towards families and children. Otters are delightful. Hard to find a quiet spot just to watch and listen.
  • Great place for seeing birds up closer. Would be a good place to go in the summer fingers crossed more will be open but there was a couple of refreshment kiosks open which was a bonus
  • A wonderful place to get small children interested in the wonders of nature. It's not just birds they also so have multiple vivarium (tanks for displaying frogs and lizards etc.) It's great to see the little faces light up.😊☺️ Unfortunately most of the buildings are closed at the moment due to the demic !
