Whatever the season, come rain or shine – the award-winning WWT Washington Wetland Centre is the perfect place to connect with nature.
Open 364 days, visitors can enjoy beautiful scenery, unforgettable wildlife encounters and special events all year round.
Explore a diverse mix of wetland, woodland, wildflower meadows and nature reserve – home to exotic wildfowl, flocks of wild waders, Asian short-clawed otters, grey herons, Chilean flamingos, woodland birds, insects and amphibians.
Visit Close Encounters and hand-feed the rarest goose in the world or watch once-extinct Eurasian cranes as they parade across the stream area.
Bird hides with views of lapwing, curlew and avocet are on the shore at Wader Lake; colourful bullfinches and great-spotted woodpeckers gather at Hawthorn Wood feeding station; mini-beasts lurk in Hollowood and fluffy chicks hatch at Waterfowl Nursery (seasonal).
Waterside Café serves up tasty food every day and is open to the general public (not including admission to the grounds). Plus there are picnic areas, an insect garden, a sculpture trail, daily talks, regular events, Splash Zone play area and WWT gift shop; as well as excellent disabled access and free wheelchair hire (including mobility scooters).
Join the WWT membership scheme during your visit and within two more trips you’ll be enjoying free days out for the next 12 months.
