WWT Welney

WWT Welney will be closed to visitors Monday 13 – Friday 17 March 2017

This is due to major maintenance and improvement works to the visitor centre and main hide, and as such has been planned for a time which causes least disturbance to birds and people. We apologise for any inconvenience caused, but hope that you will enjoy the enhanced visitor facilities once they have been completed. The improvements include new picture windows and veranda access in the Wigeon café and a new entrance to the main hide.

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.
