Slimbridge Wetland Centre is run by WWT, the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust – the UK’s leading wetland conservation charity and was founded by Sir Peter Scott. All of WWT’s Wetland Centres – including Slimbridge, exist to fulfil founder Peter Scott’s vision of connecting people with nature, so we make it a principle that our wetlands and wildlife are accessible to everyone.
WWT Slimbridge is a visitor centre and reserve, set in 800 acres of wetland paradise. From families, nature lovers and wildlife watchers, there is something for everyone.
In 2021 WWT and Slimbridge celebrated their 75th anniversary with the completion of the National Lottery Heritage Funded project ‘Slimbridge 75’. The Slimbridge 75 project has transformed Slimbridge with new inspirational and immersive experiences and activities to get visitors closer to nature and to uncover the incredible life of WWT founder, Sir Peter Scott, whose legacy still drives Slimbridge and WWT’s work today.
Slimbridge won Gold in the Inclusive and Accessibility category in the Bristol, Bath & Somerset Awards in 2021 recognising that Slimbridge provides a truly memorable visitor experience for everyone – particularly those with accessibility requirements, and demonstrates excellence across every aspect of the attraction.
