WWT London Wetland Centre

WWT London Wetland Centre is a stunning 105 acre nature haven in the heart of the city with beautiful walkways set amongst lakes, ponds, meadows and reedbeds. It is home to a wide variety of wildlife including over 180 species of birds.

Flocks of Shoveler, Gadwall and Wigeon feed on the main lake each winter, while in summer waders such as Redshank and Lapwing nest on the islands. The reed fringes are also a favourite haunt of wintering Bitterns.
