From birdwatchers to families, there is so much to discover all year round at the award-winning day out venue Slimbridge Wetland Centre – with a number of exciting immersive experiences launching as part of The Slimbridge 2020 project.

Home to the world’s largest collection of swans, geese and ducks, as well as all six species of flamingo, Slimbridge Wetland Centre offers visitors of all ages the chance to enjoy amazing wildlife up-close.

Slimbridge Wetland Centre is one of nine centres across the UK that form part of the Wildfowl & Wetland Trust, founded by naturalist and artist, Sir Peter Scott, with Slimbridge being the first of the centres to be established in 1946.

The reserve is 325 hectares, encompassing grasslands to the shores of the Severn Estuary, and is a haven for wildlife – with over 200 species of birds, including a vast number of Bewick’s swans in the winter.

Slimbridge offers a fun day out with events scheduled throughout the year. There’s also the chance to try out the bird hides and observation tower, discover the wetlands by canoe safari or on a 4×4 wild safari and dine in the Kingfisher Kitchen restaurant. Little ones, meanwhile, will love splashing about in Welly Boot Land, feeding the geese and handling frogs in Toad Hall.

For more information call Slimbridge Wetland Centre on (01453) 891900, email info.slimbridge@wwt.org.uk or visit wwt.org.uk/slimbridge directly.

Please note, following the Coronavirus crisis, Slimbridge Wetland Centre is open from Wenesday 10 June 2020, in line with the latest government guidance, and by advance booking only.
