I fell in love with the Wetland Centre the moment we walked in. It's such a beautiful, peaceful place to walk around. I was initially most excited about the otters, but after seeing all the wonderful birds they have here, I have really developed an interest in bird-watching!

I've been here twice in the space of three weeks, and both times have easily spent well over 5 hours there. The...more

The London Wetland Centre is located in Barnes, out west and sitting pretty on the south bank of the Thames. The Centre, part of a global network of wetland conservation sites, is protected by law and is designated a Special Site of Scientific Interest or SSSI.

What that means to you and I is that this vast wetland, criss-crossed by pathways, is a haven for all sorts of creepy crawlies,...more
