WWT - Wetlands for life

Welcome to Welney Wetland Centre

The friendly welcome our visitors receive is the perfect start to a day exploring wetlands, where incredible wildlife encounters take place everyday, set in the heart of the Fens. 

**Update on the bees - 25 July**

The main hive of honey bees (that had taken up residence here) have been removed by some bee keepers and are settling in to their new home nicely.  Access is now possible to the hides, dragonfly ponds, pond dipping stations and summer walk
