Visiting WWT Slimbridge is a great day out where visitors can get really close to some of
the rare and endangered wildlife – ducks, geese and swans, from all over the world.
There are 50 hectares of landscaped gardens which change throughout the year.
The 16 bird-watching hides scattered around the grounds will allow bird watchers of all abilities
to see this incredible wildlife spectacle which can be just a few yards away. Don't forget to buy a bag or two of seed to hand feed some of the tame birds
during your visit.
Children will have a fun day out and gain a wonderful insight into conservation, explore an exciting indoor interactive exhibition, with video, computer game and large tanks of coral fish. In addition there are many extra events that take place throughout the year.
The admission charge is reasonable and a full day out can be expected. For visitors with disabilities there is excellent access throughout the centre, including the bird hides, restaurant and toilets. Wheelchairs are available. Dogs are not allowed except hearing and guide dogs which are allowed by prior arrangement.
