Visitors welcome back at Slimbridge from next week
By Sarah Wood | 3rd June 2020
Slimbridge Wetland Centre will be reopening on Wednesday, June 10.
WWT's priority is to ensure the public can access its beautiful waterscapes to help boost wellbeing and people's connection with nature in the area.
In order to help protect visitors, staff and volunteers, daily numbers will be restricted and both WWT members and non-members must book on digitickets before their visit, so that the charity can monitor numbers. Social distancing and additional safety measures will be in place.
Kevin Peberdy, WWT's chief operating officer, said: "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. 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."
In line with government guidelines, Slimbridge Wetland Centre's indoors areas and areas where people gather will remain closed, this includes play areas, cafes and shops. All events, presentations, activities and talks are postponed until further notice.
