Overview
More
WWT Llanelli is a 450 acre mosaic of lakes, scrapes, pools, streams and lagoons adjoining the salt marshes and the shore of the scenic Burry Inlet. Whether you're a serious bird watcher or just looking for fun and relaxation, you can have a day of discovery whatever the weather. Hand feed some of the rarest birds in the world, see our colourful Carribean flamingos, go bug hunting or pond dipping, enjoy bird watching from our hides and explore the reserve to see butterflies, dragonflies and more! And don't forget to look out for elusive water voles! Activities throughout the year include pond dipping, minibeast hunts, workshops, special events, walks, talks and crafts. We also have our amazing canoe safari and bike trails during the school summer holidays. For the latest information about what's on at the centre, please visit our website. The Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust (WWT) is a conservation charity that saves wetlands and at risk species around the world.

We don't live far away, so decided to take the children there for the morning. Plenty of fun and enjoyment just by watching their face expression was a treat. Certainly go again and would recommend the attraction.
