From birdwatchers to families there is plenty to discover all year round. With experiences to suit all ages offering access to a huge variety of wildlife, it is no surprise we are an award-winning day out!
Tips for making the most of your day
- Arrive early to avoid the crowds
- When you arrive, check the information board for updates on what's happening that day
- Pick up a centre map and day planner on arrival - for free! Or download a map now.
- Birds have ears too! You'll see much more around the site and in hides if you are quiet and approach slowly
- Don't forget to buy a bag of grain at reception to feed the birds. Grain is better than bread for healthy birds and clear water. (If you bring bread with you, we will happily swap it for a bag of grain)
Caribbean flamingos – preening, displaying or just hanging around on one leg.
Viewing tower – experience a bird’s eye view of the marsh and estuary to get a sense of where you are.
Hides – for superb views of the marsh and estuary, the British Steel hide is the place. Also find the Heron’s wing and Sir Peter Scott hides for two different and stunning angles on the Millennium wetlands.
Water vole city and the Swan’s nest maze – lovely places to play.
