A world of new adventures awaits anyone who wants to experience the best of nature at any of the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust (WWT) locations around the world. Dedicated to the conservation of natural habitats globally, the WWT is listed among the most trusted of these organizations. The WWT came into being in 1946 in the United Kingdom (UK) when it was founded by Sir Peter Scott.
The London Wetland Centre is one of nine wetlands spread across the UK. The others are located in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. The London Centre is the first of its kind, nestled in the city centre. Anyone who has ever visited, will easily understand why the location was named in Countryfile Magazine in 2012 as the UK’s Favourite Nature Reserve after a public vote.
The London Wetland Centre opened its doors in May 2000 and has welcomed countless visitors since. It is unique in that people living in the city are able to forget city life for a while as they enjoy the scenic beauty of the countryside once they enter the gates. It is open every day except Christmas (December 25), but visitors need to confirm the opening hours as they vary.
There are 27, 000 trees and over 300,000 plants in this natural reserve. For those visitors who want to learn more about the centre and the plant and animal life, free tours are available daily. These guided tours can be taken between 11:00am to 2:30 pm. However, if all you want to do is walk the grounds to admire the surroundings, you are free to do so as well. You can also take a bird feeding tour, which starts at 3:00pm.
This is the perfect place for families looking to spend a fun day together while learning about creatures such as wildfowls, Gadwall and Shoveler ducks, water voles, bats, snakes and butteries. Visitors can choose to use any of the six hide outs located across the property to watch birds that make the Centre’s habitat their home. With over 200 species of birds, this is a fun activity for visitors of any age. In 2002, the London Wetland Centre was designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). Attached to this designation is the protection of Gadwall and Shoveler ducks.
The London Wetland Centre is designed to accommodate mobility scooters and other aids used by people with disabilities. Just call for information on their accessibility options which include being able to rent a mobility scooter. The London Wetland Centre strives to make the grounds available to everyone in a safe environment.
To help with maintaining the wetlands, you can become a member of WWT. This conservation group offers a number of membership options such as individual, family and young person. The rates are reasonable and start at £20 for any young person who wants to contribute to this important cause. You can also pay monthly or take up a lifetime membership.
