Must see · Wildlife Area · Nature / Park
Explore 324 hectares (800 acres) of world-class wetlands set against the backdrop of the Severn Estuary. WWT Slimbridge Wetland Centre is home to a wealth of resident and migratory wildlife from all over the world. Take a guided walk to learn more about the Slimbridge Wetlands, its history, the center's conservation work, and the wildlife. Tours take place once a day, so check the events board when you arrive at the center to find out where and when to meet. Be sure to also check times for talks and special events taking place, such as otter talks and the wild bird feed. Get up close to the birds and pick up some grain to offer them at exhibits where feeding is permitted. The Water Edge restaurant is an ideal place to relax after your walk around the grounds. The restaurant offers views of the Caribbean flamingos and, weather permitting, the picnic tables on the terrace allow you to get even closer to them. Binoculars can be hired from the reception, and you can visit the In Focus Shop on site if you’d like to purchase your own equipment.
