We missed you all during lockdown and we hope you’ve kept safe and well. You remain our primary concern, so rest assured that we’re following the latest Government guidance and we are only opening as and when we can do so safely.
To help keep you and our staff, volunteers and local communities safe, we're limiting the number of people who can visit on any one day. And we have introduced a booking system to manage that.
Please read through this page to understand everything you need to know about what to expect from your visit and how to book.
The wetlands and the wildlife that you come to see is all here as usual. However, we’ve rearranged a few things to keep everyone safe.
From the experience of the last few months, we know that the situation changes frequently. We do our best to keep the information here on our website completely up to date, but sometimes that’s not 100% possible. You may find that on the day you visit we’ve had to close something, or we’ve been able to open up something that was previously restricted. We hope that doesn’t affect your enjoyment of your day.
So take your time, look, watch and listen, and enjoy being surrounded by nature.
We’re carefully managing the total number of people who visit on any one day to help keep everyone safe.

If you’re a WWT member, you can still visit for free, but we need you to book in advance so we can manage numbers. Please ensure you bring your membership card and your booking confirmation with you to gain entry.Book your visit
