Join us for a trip to Slimbridge Wildfowl and Wetlands centre, then an afternoon at the historic Gloucester docks.


Slimbridge is one of the largest collections of wildfowl species in the world. Home to 6 types of flamingo, Otters, beautiful ducks, geese and Swans. The WWT is a charity which helps preserve birds and their natural habitats. Spend the morning having a wander around this 2000 acre reserve, marvel at the many species that call it home and maybe have some tea and cake in the cafe.
