Home to a world of wetland wildlife, WWT Slimbridge Wetland Centre offers visitors of all ages the chance to see swans, ducks, geese and even flamingos and otters up-close.

With 100-plus acres of habitats to explore, the reserve is a haven for over 200 species of birds, including a vast number of migrating Bewick’s swans in the winter months.

Slimbridge offers a great day out for families, with fun events scheduled throughout the year; as well as birdwatchers and budding photographers, who will love trying out the bird hides.

Little ones will love splashing about in Welly Boot Land, feeding the geese and spotting frogs in Toad Hall.

There’s also the chance to step into the shoes of an arctic explorer; dine in the Kingfisher Kitchen restaurant; and discover the wetlands by canoe safari.
