At WWT Welney Wetland Centre the safety of our visitors, staff and volunteers is a priority and we are delighted to say that we have been accredited with the “We’re Good to Go” stamp of approval.
“We’re Good To Go” is a UK wide industry standard which has been developed in partnership with Visit England, Tourism Northern Ireland, Visit Scotland and Visit Wales.
Our accreditation means you can rest assured that we are doing everything to ensure we operate within the relevant government and public health guidance, and have carried out a coronavirus risk assessment.
To help keep everyone safe and manage numbers on site we have introduced an online booking system. Everyone, whether a WWT member or not, must pre-book before visiting.
Since re-opening, visitors have been enjoying the wide open vistas of our Fenland wetlands. The furthest reaches of the reserve are currently accessible, including the summer walk, dragonfly ponds and footpaths to all the hides. Summer is the best time to appreciate the diversity of wildlife our wetlands are home to. Wildflowers are in bloom, dragonflies, damselflies, bees and butterflies are on the wing, beetles, crickets and caterpillars are waiting to be found and summer birds are looking after the last few broods of young as autumn arrivals begin to drop in.
Currently shared equipment areas are not in use, such as explorer backpacks and pond dipping (check back for further updates soon). So download some wildlife guides on your phone before you visit to get the most out of your days’ exploration.
Our gift shop, gallery and scooter hire are currently available, as well as a selection of cold drinks, ice creams and snacks from our Wigeon Café. Every penny spent on site supports conservation of our wetland habitats and wildlife here in Norfolk.
Welney Wetland Centre is open daily 9.30am - 4pm.
