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

Taking place every Saturday in January 2023, Slimbridge’s ever-popular Evening with the Swans 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 glass of Buck's fizz 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 chicken supreme in mushroom and tarragon cream sauce or feta, spinach and filo pie, with a rich chocolate torte for dessert.

Tickets must be booked online in advance via wwt.org.uk/slimbridge/evening-with-the-swans.
