Overview

Nestled in a loop of the Thames, London Wetland Centre is an urban oasis for wildlife and people; a rural idyll in the heart of the capital. Voted the UK’s Favourite Nature Reserve by readers of Country file magazine, it is perfect for a relaxing stroll along the paths that meander among the lakes, meadows and gardens. The Centre is a haven for wild ducks, wading birds, butterflies, bats, amphibians and water voles. Visitors can also see a collection of beautiful water birds from around the world, and watch the antics of the otter family at feeding time. With six hides, two kids’ adventure zones and a café there’s something for everyone.

Went for a day out whilst staying in Hammersmith. Beautifully natural landscaped habitat. Interesting activities throughout the day and the most helpful and cheerful volunteers and staff you could hope to find anywhere. A really enjoyable visit, hope to go again sometime.

The otters were the only highlight of the visit. Most species of the birds advertised were nowhere to be seen - except for ducks, ducks and more ducks. Binoculars would have helped us spot birds other than ducks, and to be fair they were being...More
