Evening with the Swans at Slimbridge Wetland Centre

Event ended

Editor's Choice

This event has been postponed. Enjoy the world-famous swans and supper at Slimbridge Wetland Centre, for a truly magical winter experience.

Visit Slimbridge Wetland Centre after hours for the rare chance to see its hundreds of Bewick’s swans on the illuminated evening lake.

Slimbridge’s ever popular Evening with the Swans takes place on selected nights, from Saturday 12 December 2020 to Saturday 13 February 2021.

It gives visitors the chance to gaze out across the wetland from the heated Peng Observatory, watching majestic swans, geese and ducks glide across the floodlit lake – all with a warming glass of mulled cider and a mince pie in hand.

Slimbridge’s expert wardens will share the details of the birds’ incredible journey back to Gloucestershire each winter, from destinations as far away as arctic Russia.

After seeing the swans feed, guests will make their way to Slimbridge’s Kingfisher Kitchen for a delicious two-course meal – with dishes including slow roasted chicken breast or vegetable wellington, with the option of Bucks fizz cheesecake or lemon tart for dessert.

Following government guidelines, social distanced seating will be in place throughout the event and numbers are limited to keep guests as safe as possible. Tickets must be booked online in advance.
