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.

Loved this trip so much we became members. Fantastic day out for families, couples or on your own. Its a leisurely half a days walk around the wetlands. There's an outdoor cage at the far end to break up the walk. Lots of benches in quiet spots and lots of gorgeous birds to watch. And feed in some areas. If your brave... the geese are a bit excited when you have some bird food to give them!
It's such a lovely place to visit. I loved the goslings. So cute, I managed to smooth one while it was eating seed. They sell bags of seed for £1.50 and I had plenty of enjoyment feeding the geese. There was the odd one that preferred to grab your hand instead of the seed but it didn't hurt 🙂. I sat on a bench near the flamingo for lunch. It was so peaceful. There is plenty to see and adults and kids will enjoy it. I'll keep going back time and time again.
