Good modern facilties in support of WWT's London Wetland Centre so that visitors can walk on well prepared and marked paths in amongst the water pits or go indoors and still see lots. Good well organised cafeteria.

I’m not sure what I was expecting really, but I was a bit disappointed. Maybe because it’s more of a children’s thing to do. The otters were super cute and the place was very pretty but we ran out of things to do quite quickly
