Slimbridge Wetland Centre

Slimbridge Wetland Centre, in the Stroud area of Gloucestershire, is an award-winning day out — home to a world of wetland wildlife, family attractions and prime birdwatching spots.

With over 100 acres of habitats to explore, there's something new to discover with every visit to WWT Slimbridge Wetland Centre — home to a vast collection of wildlife, including five species of flamingo, ducks, geese and up to 30,000 migratory birds visiting in the winter months.

Nature lovers can meet the world’s rarest goose at the Hawaiian-inspired Mission Possible exhibit, watch pelicans flying overhead in bird demonstrations at the Living Wetland Theatre, spot colourful amphibians in Toad Hall or 'aww' at adorable Asian short-clawed otters, harvest mice and water voles.

It’s a fantastic destination for a family day out, with different events and trails to enjoy throughout the year. During the summer months, visitors can wade out on the waterways on a one-kilometre canoe safari or take a walk on the wild side on a 4x4 wild safari.

Little ones will love splashing about in Welly Boot Land, while birdwatchers and budding photographers have 13 bird hides to choose from — including the Estuary Tower, overlooking the Severn estuary.

Slimbridge provides nature for all, with accessible pathways throughout, a Changing Places toilet located next to the centre, wheelchairs and mobility scooters for hire, along with a host of sensory experiences.
