London Wetland Centre

London’s ‘urban oasis for wildlife and people’ is open for socially distanced strolls among the lakes, ponds and gardens, with play areas open for children.

Located on Queen Elizabeth’s Walk in Barnes, the wetland centre is a perfect day out to break up the monotony of lockdown.

“We are delighted to be able to welcome people back to our wetlands after this extended period of lockdown.

The lockdown has forced many of us onto the side lines while spring’s great spectacle plays out, and what better way to catch up, than with a visit to our wetlands to see what nature’s been up to. It’s certainly been busy – above water and under water, our wetlands are teeming with wildlife.

We’ve made a number of changes to help everyone stay safe. Most importantly, we’re asking everyone to book online so that we can limit numbers and make sure there’s plenty of space to enjoy the wetlands in peace and comfort” said Kevin Peberdy, the Chief Operating Officer.
