We're very sorry but we're currently unable to hold birthday parties at WWT Castle Espie. We'll look to start taking bookings again as soon as it is safe to do so. Thank you for your patience.

WWT Castle Espie Wetland Centre is an ideal venue for children's birthday parties. Everyone can enjoy a unique party full of fun and fascination in the great outdoors!

We have four dedicated party options to choose from:

  1. Duckling Hunt Party – Everyone can get up close to nature, feeding our amazing collection of colourful birds and playing our duckling related game.
  2. Wildlife Detectives Party – Discover the world of wildlife around you as you go mini-beast hunting and pond dipping.
  3. Make a Bird Feeder Party – Make your very own bird feeder to take home and get up close to our amazing collection of colourful birds.
  4. Wild in the Woods Party – Build your own den and enjoy lunch around the campfire in our new and exclusive woodland habitat.
