Join us for some festive Christmas fun at London Wetland Centre this December! We have lots of activities for the whole family to enjoy (see below for Christmas activity dates)
Husky Sleigh Rides
Children will be thrilled to hop aboard for a festive husky sleigh ride through the beautiful wetland scenery. They are sure to fall in love the friendly husky dogs, which pull their sleds barking joyfully.
8 & 9 December. 10am– 4pm. Free with paid admission. Suitable for younger children ages 2-8.
Take a ride on an adorable donkey! It’s a wonderful experience with the donkeys saddled up in their Christmas finery – and makes for a great photo too!

*weight restrictions apply
The Elves are a little behind schedule this year and they need help to ensure there are enough presents in time for Christmas! Drop into their workshop throughout the day to help them prepare and to make your own Christmas gifts.
