London Wetland Cente offers a unique setting for private functions.

Our nature reserve is a scenic mosaic of lakes, pools, meadows and gardens which are home to countless wildlife species including kingfishers, butterflies and damselflies.

The centre brings the countryside to London; it’s just 10 minutes from Hammersmith by bus but it could be a world away. You and your guests can enjoy beautiful, relaxing surroundings combined with easy access from central London and the South.

We have a number of rooms available for private functions; our light, spacious rooms provide a ‘rural’ setting but with the convenience of a capital location. Our services, such as catering and a tour of the centre for your guests, can be tailor-made to suit your requirements.
