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 to everyone.
WWT Slimbridge Wetland Centre has the following facilities
Carers assisting disabled visitors go free
Free accessible car parking provision – 17 designated spaces
Trained assistance dogs wearing the appropriate branded jacket and lead/harness, and where possible with the accompanying ID card are welcome. Unfortunately dogs in training are not permitted on site, and we would appreciate if visitors are able to call ahead, to let us know they will be visiting with an assistance dog on 01453 891200.

We have a fleet of mobility scooters for hire (available 7 days per week) at £10 per day, to include an introductory briefing.
