in the last week


It was a very cold overcast winter's day, so we drove to the WWT in Barnes, right by the river Thames. Well it's free parking, has two cafe's, ample toilets and best of all loads of wildlife from otters to all types of birds and ducks. There are lots of Hides where you can quietly observe the wildlife so bring your binoculars. There's a shop of course and your visit contributes to the upkeep. Highly recommended for children and adults.

Great first time visit with family. Daughter and husband already members as they have a little boy who loves the place They visit quite often as they live near. The Christmas lights brought adults and grandson great fun. The little one was delighted to press buttons and see some of the displays light up. The real animals were also a great joy to watch. Picnic areas available.There were lots of children and you needed to book a time of entry to avoid overcrowding. Highly recommend the place.

Excellent for children (and bird lovers outside of holidays!) We were drawn here by the current Lego trail which was suitably fun but we discovered what i would argue is one of the best playgrounds in country (bring a towel and swimmers!) We also enjoyed pond dipping and running through around the wild walk. An extremely full day without even mentioning all the lovely ducks geese and birds that call it their home. Well done WWT.

Amazing jewel in the city and beautiful wildlife. The various hides across the site allow for many good vantage points to watch the birds. I got to witness a Marsh Harrier hunting for the first time from the Peacock Tower Hide, which the the highlight of my day. Lovely onsite cafe for coffees, lunch and cakes. Also free parking for members which was a huge bonus to my membership.
