This is a wonderful place where the birds live like Kings and the guests can spend hours wandering round enjoying the serenity and smells of the wetlands. At the start of the trail there are lakes and islands where you can watch a variety of different species of ducks and geese. There are pictures of the birds so you can... More

Went just after the Easter holidays, so few children there other than noisy toddlers. This would be useful if you were going to certain parts of the world seeking out various birds, as you can get close to most which would help ID in the field, but other than that, this is more like a bird zoo. Went on the... More

We visited the Wetland Centre on a sunny and windy day. Even before entering we saw a water vole swimming across the water by the entrance - what a start! The extent of the variety of species was wonderful and the paths and hides are laid out beautifully. Great experience to walk through the reed beds and see the coots... More

This site is well worth a visit if you have an interest in bird life, mainly aquatic. The various lakes etc have surfaced level paths making for easy access for disabled and pushchair. There is a boat tour included which is also wheelchair friendly. The extent of wild birds is obviously dependent on the time of year. Parking is easy... More

Every visit brings new sights and sounds especially in the spring months. Our most recent trip was for the duck hunt which was excellent for my little niece. She was excited when finding each of the ducks hidden on site. Mallard ducklings were all over the place along with plenty of other waterfowl including a close up of lapwings from... More

Looking for a picnic spot stumbled across the Wetlands Wildfowl Trust. what a find! The picnic area is not large and in the hight... More

The paths and walkways are level and well maintained, the little boat ride is a delight and we have seen rare water voles on several occastions - a real treat Cafe is good and there are plenty of places to sit inside and...

Excellent day out to see a huge variety of birds and insects. Very very welcoming and child friendly with a wonderful cafe or outdoor places to eat a picnic. Much better when it's dry but safe tarred paths to walk along. Great fun with organised events.

It was a lovely day out, I think the rain and wind made it even more positive as the birds were still there, but the public weren't! We had the boat to ourselves and the man was very nice. Lovely blue tits and chaffinches. Will definitely return!
