Just a short walk from Tudor Caravan Park - the world famous Slimbridge Wetland Centre is a great family day out. As well as thousands of birds - see otters being fed, go on a canoe safari, and make a splash at Welly Boot Land.
The Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust Centre at Slimbridge is an easy 5 minute walk from the park - just over the canal bridge and 800 yards down the road.
Founded in 1946 by the artist and naturalist Sir Peter Scott (1909 - 1989), the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust is the largest international wetland conservation charity in the UK.
Open all year round, the centre offers the perfect place to get close to nature, last year alone over 20,000 birds dropped into the site & it's also home to up to 35,000 wildfowl in the winter.
The Slimbridge reserve is a great place to see rare birds from all over the world. In the summer take a Land Rover safari or visit one of our hides and you may see hobby, kingfishers, redshank, brown hares, dragonflies, wild otters, grass snakes and wild orchids.
The reserve provides shelter and food for flocks of swans, geese and ducks in the winter and is an ideal breeding ground for waders in the summer months.
See 'Back from the Brink' species such as beavers & crane as well over 200 species of birds - including 25 different wildfowl, often in very large numbers. At certain times of the year you may experience the amazing swarming starlings shows.
