WWT Slimbridge Wetland Centre, Slimbridge
Categories: Wildlife Areas, Nature & Parks
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.

Really great place with lots of lovely birds. The Nene geese are just fantastic. It has a nice shop and restaurant and you can spend hours roaming around the extensive grounds. The flamingos are brilliant too!
Grown a lot in recent years due to Lottery funding, there is miles to walk, plenty to see and do, great adventure for all ages. Restaurant on site too. re-entry allowed with your receipt (on the day) if you need to get out and back in again (i.e. for picnic) Plenty of talks/feeding sessions etc to get involved in. play areas all over the site to keep little ones amused. Don't forget your camera!!
Amazing range of wildlife, wonderful facilities, lots of play areas for children. Big cafe with good range of food, if a bit expensive. Runs different events and courses. Annual membership is good value.
Slimbridge is an incredible place. There is so much to do for families and it is simply lovely to walk around. I particularly love Wellyboot Land for the younger children and the canoeing is so peaceful. I will always visit here.
A very nice day out with a young family. Fantastic staff who love working there, great playgrounds, and so much wildlife to see and learn about.
