As you can see, this weekend we opted for a very cultural and eco-friendly weekend.
We visited the London Wetland Centre. Located close to Putney, the centre is quite big with a crazy amount of birds. For bird-watchers, is a haven in the middle of the city! they have otters who swim freely in the centre. Endangered bird species and you can even see cows grazing the grass for them. It’s brilliant.
The centre is filled with colourful flowers and plants and animals just roam around not even a tiny bit afraid of you. I loved it!
There are walking tours available along with little courses such as wild photography and bird-watching. Schools and parents come here alike and the kids are delighted!
The gardens are sustainable and beautiful. Feel free to stroll while you explore and just forget about noisy London and enjoy this heavenly place.
It is also very interactive. You can feed birds, have a net and explore the bottom of ponds. You can climb a tower and look around and be amazed on how such a big place has been unnoticed by most of us.
It is indeed pricey, but to think they live on that… It’s amazing.
