The London Wetland Centre – vast quantities of useful information including, of course, directions, can be found on their website.

The Observatory is the space with wall-to-ceiling glass

We’ve chosen the Observatory at the London Wetland Centre because it’s central, there’s free parking, it’s fully accessible, it’s beautiful and, most important of all, it’s part of the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust (WWT), a conservation charity. Oh, and there are otters.

They’re Asian small-clawed otters, an endangered species

As part of our day all guests will have free access to the Wetlands from the start of the event until closing time (5.30pm) and the cafés are open until 5.00pm if you arrive peckish. Bring your own binoculars or hire a pair from reception. Did I mention the otters?

Much to Maizy‘s disgust no dogs are allowed. But you can’t have everything. Children, on the other hand, are positively encouraged.
