Exclusive Evening with the Swans at Slimbridge

Posted on 10 Nov 2020

Tickets are now on sale for our Evening with the Swans 2020-2021 event. Experience the beauty and sounds of hundreds of wild swans on a floodlit lake before enjoying a delicious two course meal at the Kingfisher Kitchen.

This is a truly unique event perfect for wildlife lovers. Winter migration brings rare beauties to Slimbridge each year including the enchanting Bewick's swan from the tundra in Arctic Russia.

The evening commences with a glass of mulled cider and mince pie in our fully heated Peng Observatory watching the wild swans, geese and ducks as they are fed on a floodlit lake.

Our experienced wardens will provide full audio commentary describing the impressive journey each species makes to reach Slimbridge, its winter home.

This year socially distanced seating will be in place and there will be limited numbers to make it a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone.

Following the bird feeding spectacle guests will head to the Kingfisher Kitchen and enjoy a sumptuous two course meal.

...An amazing floodlit evening feed with swans, geese and ducks flying in, floodlit from below, the swans looking like groups of concords coming into land...There is a very informative talk about the work of the WWT and this is followed by a dinner. So relaxing, so special, so exciting...
