National Wetlands Centre
The award-winning National Wetland Centre Wales is situated on the northern shore of the Burry Inlet, with stunning views over the estuary and Gower. Whether you’re a serious bird watcher or just looking for fun and relaxation, you can enjoy a day of discovery, whatever the weather and whatever the season.
The centre is home to countless wild species and you can get close to some of the world’s most spectacular ducks, geese, swans and flamingos, many so tame they feed from the hand. Watch a multitude of birds all year round in the comfort of our all weather hides.
This is the ideal venue for an entertaining family day out with walks, talks and themed art & craft activities. Don’t forget to visit the discovery centre, the well stocked gift shop or licensed café with its commanding views of the estuary.
On our ‘Duckling Days’ during late spring bank holiday week take a unique ‘behind the scenes’ guided tour of the hatchery and indoor duckery to see cute, downy ducklings take their wobbly first steps.
During the summer holidays, why not hop on one of a fleet of bikes and explore over 200 untamed acres of ponds, lagoons and meadows in the Millennium Wetlands. Or why not explore watery expanses on a canoe safari and maybe spot a water vole and dancing dragonflies as you glide through the reeds in one of our Canadian style open canoes.
There is ample free parking for cars and coaches; There are wheelchairs and mobility scooters and excellent access throughout. Service dogs are welcome. Disabled toilets and baby changing also available.
The centre is open seven days a week, except 24 and 25 December, 9.30am – 5.00pm winter, grounds open until 6.00pm in the summer.
