Nature lovers will love a break from the noises of London at WWT London Wetland Centre, a haven for birds and other wildlife. Explore the exhibits at the visitor’s center to understand the animals that regularly stop at the sanctuary. The reserve sprawls for more than 40 hectares (100 acres) so enjoy a walk along its many paths. Along the way get close to ducks and other birds or dip your nets into the wetlands and see what creatures you can find. Visit the native plants in their natural gardens. If it’s a rainy day, participate in some of the planned activities at the Visitor’s Center. For travelers who use our world travel planner, London holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the WWT London Wetland Centre and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

I enjoyed my visit to the WWT. It was easy to find and there was ample car parking on site. The entrance fee was reasonable and if you intend to visit other WWT sites in the following 12 months... more »
Very relaxing and informative if you like birds and countryside. Amazing to think you are in such an urban area, it's a great escape. Plenty to keep adults and children interested for 3 or 4 hours. Otter feeding time was a highlight! Nice cafe with lots of options for children too. Plenty of parking, but remember to ask for a token at reception or as you leave, to get out of the car park.
If you are into birds then you will love this place. If you aren't into birds then it's a nice place to walk around while learning about the wildlife. The staff are knowledgeable and do regular talks about the animals. It's a great place to take kids as they have a bunch of activities for them.
