Description

With the British summer weather so unpredictable it’s fortunate that there’s always something to do at WWT, come rain or shine! There is a range of attractions that are firmly under cover, for those days when outside is just too wet to be braved.

Just because it’s raining doesn’t mean you have to stay at home. Put on your coat and come to London Wetland Centre – we’ve got plenty of things to do for adults and children alike, undercover or indoors. And of course, it’s lovely weather for ducks…

Children will love the Discovery Centre, an indoor play zone that takes you on a journey through the wetlands of the world. Our high-tech Pond Zone has three great features all of which are undercover, and they can take a trip Down the Plughole to follow water on its journey from sink and toilet, through a real sewer pipe, into the wetlands. We run regular events, from talks on wildlife and photography to family activities at weekends.  Many of these events can be moved indoors on wet days.

Summer 2016

Sunday 24th July – Sunday 4th September

This summer bring your youngsters to WWT London Wetland Centre to pick up their passport to a summer of fun.  Children can collect a passport with wildlife themed activities on it and for every challenge they complete they’ll get a sticker, making them an official Nature Explorer!

Join our wetland wardens who will help you complete some of the Nature Explorer challenges. Compete against us in a game of wetland animal Top Trumps, make a leaf rubbing, spot bees or join us for a pond dipping session to see what mini-beasts are about.

Not only will the activities keep kids amused for hours, they’ll also open up a world of exploration and excitement that will keep them enthralled throughout their lives. So why not give your children the chance to discover the fun and passion that an outdoor lifestyle brings?

Special Events

Between 3rd October – 8th November 2015, come and visit the giant LEGO brick animal trail, the only one of its kind in the UK. This is the first time these amazing characters, especially created for WWT, have been seen in the capital among the real life animals which inspired them.

Through this trail, the nature reserve is using the world’s most popular toy to encourage kids (and big kids) to build a better future for nature.

The giant animals, some up to twelve times life size, include Natalie the Nene, the world’s rarest goose, who arrived in style to the launch in a London taxi, Flavia the Andean flamingo, a riot of pink bricks and Benedict the Bewick’s swan, magnificently stretching his brick wings. Another model, Lottie the otter, was named through a social media competition, to celebrate the birth of Princess Charlotte.
