WWT Welney

Flooding and access to hides

Due to recent rains and snow melt along the Great River Ouse, the Ouse washes is currently flooding to depths that effect access to our hides.

Tuesday 16 January update: All hides apart from Reedbed hide are now open.  We apologise for the disruption and we expect Reedbed hide to open in the next week.

Welcome to Welney Wetland Centre

The friendly welcome our visitors receive is the perfect start to a day exploring wetlands, where incredible wildlife encounters take place everyday, set in the heart of the Fens.
