We visited in the Spring and my son loved feeding the ducks and seeing all the baby ducklings. The boat trip is also lots of fun and very informative.

We visited on a lovely sunny day (I'm not sure how much fun it would be in wet weather unless you are happy sitting in a hide; my young kids wouldn't bear it). We really enjoyed the almost-silent boat ride with knowledgeable guide. We were very excited to see water voles. The variety of ducks is astounding - don't miss the extremely endangered 'red-breasted geese' which have featured in ancient Egyptian paintings. I have seen them! I could have spent hours just looking at the ducks but it's lovely to just walk around even if you aren't mad on birds. The kids really enjoyed the wooden play structures - especially the one for older kids (walk right from the entrance to the edge of the centre). They also enjoyed the pond dipping although there was a bit of a queue and I'm not sure if this is always offered. We enjoyed an excellent, fresh chicken curry and baked potatoes for lunch, looking through huge glass windows at a pretty expanse of water. I can't wait to go back (but will check the weather forecast first!)

Firstly a huge thank you to Claire who has helped immensely making our wedding day so smooth running. She is really encouraging and organised and no question was too big! We knew we did not need to worry about a thing. Diva was amazing on the day also. This was the perfect setting for our wedding and all of the guests complimented the beautiful scenery and helpful staff. The man doing the boat trips was so lovely and brought a touch of magic to our day. The food was stunning and staff could not have been more helpful! We will be back every August for our anniversary as the wetlands have us the best day of our lives by far.

We had a great day out watching and feeding the birds - big, small, too many to list. You can walk just as far as you would like, watch from various hides, sit and feed whatever comes by. We try and go at least once a year, this time we went at the end of the rearing season. A great place for disabled in wheelchairs or on mobility schooters and also for children. Take binnoculars and a camera. There is a cafe which serves a limited menu, I would have liked to see more variety and choice. The coffee is great! For those that don't bring food for the birds, corn can be purchased from the reception/shop.
