Slimbridge - Wildfowl and Wetlands Centre

Slimbridge, Glos GL2 7BT

The Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust (WWT) promotes the conservation of wetlands focusing on rare wetland birds. Founded in 1946 by the artist and naturalist Sir Peter Scott, WWT is the largest international wetland conservation charity in the UK.

Eight million people have visited Slimbridge to get closer to wildlife & wetlands since Sir Peter Scott opened the doors in 1946. Some people come to get close to the birds, other people just love the ambience of this haven by the Severn. The birds keep coming back too - more than 20,000 wild birds dropped by last year, some staying for months before starting out on their great migratory journeys.

A brand new Visitor Centre (the largest Millennium project in Gloucestershire) now offers all the facilities you would expect from a world-class Centre for birds and people.
