Feathered Fancies

Your first stop at Slimbridge has to be the grain desk. Grab your bag of seed and have our ducks, geese and swans eating out of the palm of your hand. Spot the rarest goose in the world and our iconic Bewick’s swans. Then play a game of flamingo bingo! Marvel at our pink wonders and see if you can see all our species in one day.

Watery Wonders

Enter the alien world of amphibians when you step foot in Toad Hall. Ponder over frogs, newts, salamanders and more from all over the world. Get close-up and even hold one of our star species in our talk and handling sessions daily. Then head outside to our Pond Zone for some watery fun, learning all about pond life and its secret superpowers.

Marvellous Mammals

Meet our fabulous family of cheeky otters and watch them splash and play at feeding time. Then see cute-as-a-button harvest mice up-close; see if you can spot our shy water voles and learn how we’re helping save endangered.

A great day out!
