Found the café noisy and that tables were not cleaned immediately after use by others (despite staff being available). The staff did not impress at all and struck us as being untrained students who thought customers were people who interrupted the conversation they were having with colleagues. Can not comment on activities as we did not partake

I came here twice, once by myself and once with friends. I did the wetlands tour when I came by myself and it was alright. It was a bit smaller than I expected but otherwise it was fine. I guess it's more tailored towards a younger crowd and I could see the kids on the tour really enjoying themselves while... More

Fantastic day out. Took my cousins there and had a great day. Had a ball on the lake and will definitely be going there again soon.

We stopped in October so perhaps it might have been better in the summer. What they have done with a former waste site is lovely, but I had expected to see more wildlife. The canal boats were not running, but the tower was great for providing views of the entire area. The walk was not that impressive. Indeed the introductory... More

We didnt really know what to expect,but it was different. Younger kids may not appreciate the history lesson of the area,but there's a nice little boat trip afterwards to keep them happy. It's not that big,but it is unique. Restaurant is nice and the centre isnt that expensive to visit. Worth a look.

I did not go the Centre just did the walk through the wetlands. It is beautiful and what I liked most, is that a lot of locals appear to use it. Great place to have in front of your doorstep.

Fantastic visit as we began in the Restaurant which catered for our group ranging in age from 2 to 70+. The staff were very friendly and accommodating and the food was excellent quality. It was August and even though fore warned about the lack of wildlife at the time we went and did the tour. It was fantastic, Alan our... More

This was an excellent center for a family with kids. Plenty to do on the water. Wildlife all around. The restaurant was excellent and reasonably priced. The kids loved it and can’t wait to go back again next year.

August is not the best time of the year to visit the wet lands due to the lack of wild life earlier or later in the year would be much better
