Slimbridge Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust

Slimbridge Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust

The birthplace of modern conservation, Slimbridge Wetland Centre is set within 325 hectares against a spectacular Severn Estuary backdrop. Land Rover rides and canoe safaris guarantee close encounters with a dazzling array of wetland life and there’s lots for our young visitors to enjoy, including the welly-boot land play area.

Slimbridge is home to a huge variety of wildlife including the world's largest collection of swans, geese, and ducks.

A year round programme of walks, arts, events, workshops, talks and spectacular wildlife encounters are a fantastic way for everyone to connect to their natural surroundings.

Slimbridge is the vision of naturalist and artist Sir Peter Scott and holds international significance as the headquarters of the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust (WWT).  It is here that the world renowned experts of WWT Consulting and Species Conservation are based.
