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.

  • There are a number of gates with stiff / heavy opening mechanisms. Our roaming volunteers or staff can assist, please ask.
  • Level access hides.
