Evening with the Swans at Slimbridge Wetland Centre

Event ended

Editor's Choice

Experience an enchanting evening when Slimbridge Wetland Centre invites visitors to enjoy the swans and a supper this winter.

Offering a rare chance to see hundreds of wild swans on a floodlit lake, enjoy a delicious dinner and step inside Slimbridge after it closes to the public – an Evening with the Swans is an unmissable event this winter.

Taking place on Friday and Saturday evenings from Friday 29 November 2019 to Saturday 8 February 2020, Evening with the Swans begins with a glass of mulled cider in the heated Peng Observatory, where guests look out across the floodlit lake to watch the wild swans, geese and ducks.

Nature lovers will be in their element as Slimbridge’s expert wardens provide a commentary about the birds’ extensive journey back to Slimbridge each winter.

After seeing the swans, guests will head to the Kingfisher Kitchen for a delicious two-course meal. Dishes include roast breast of free-range chicken with bacon and thyme crumble and, rich chocolate tart with salted caramel ice cream to finish.
