WWT Castle Espie

All our Wetland Centres exist to fulfil founder Peter Scott’s vision of connecting people with nature, so we make it a principle that our wetlands and wildlife are accessible to everyone.

WWT Castle Espie Wetland Centre has the following facilities:

  • Free accessible car parking provision
  • Trained assistance dogs welcome
  • Maps can be enlarged, please ask ahead of your visit
  • 2 manual wheelchairs available to loan
  • 2 mobility scooters available to loan. Please ring in advance to book *you must be a member of Shop Mobility in order to loan a scooter*
  • The paths around the site are mostly level access
  • There are gates. Please ask roaming volunteers, grounds or reception staff if you require assistance
  • There is step-free entry to all our hides and viewing windows for wheelchairs
  • 2 accessible toilets

In addition we have friendly and helpful staff, so if you need restaurant staff to carry a tray to your table or help open a gate – please just ask!

If you have any specific questions about our accessibility then please feel free to call us on 028 9187 4146 and we can discuss it with you and help you plan your day.

We look forward to welcoming you to WWT Castle Espie Wetland Centre.
