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 Caerlaverock Wetland Centre has the following facilities:

  • Free accessible car parking provision
  • Trained assistance dogs wearing the appropriate branded jacket and lead/harness, and where possible with the accompanying ID card are welcome. Unfortunately dogs in training are not permitted on site.
  • Maps can be enlarged, please ask ahead of your visit
  • Access around the site is mostly level and there are no gates
  • Step-free entry to the ground floor of all our hides with viewing windows for wheelchairs
  • 1 accessible toilet
  • Peter Scott Centenary Walk – a good sensory experience
  • We have flat, wide avenues suitable for wheelchairs and all our hides are accessible. Wheelchairs are available to hire.

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 01387 770200 and we can discuss it with you and help you plan your day.

We look forward to welcoming you to WWT Caerlaverock Wetland Centre.
