Interesting, plenty to see & well set up. There's also a small playground for the kids & a cafe on the site.

Such a well run WWT Centre. Staff excellent and the Centre is very well maintained. The play park area is great for all ages and the cafe is very enjoyable.

very expensive for a family. and they try to charge another 10% to receive gift aid. its a great place but I think £30+ and then all the add on's are a bit exploitative. but duck food is expensive and they are saving the world....
