The Welsh Wildlife Centre

About The Welsh Wildlife Centre

Set in a 264 acre Wildlife Nature Reserve, it's a great place to bring children.

Whether it's outside letting loose in the Adventure Play Area, exploring the 4 themed Nature Trails and popping into the Bird Hides; or inside in the Learning through Play area (drawing, colouring and quizzes) or just watching Wildlife films or Live Webcams from Skomer island (home to Puffins) and Teifi Marshes outside.

It's a place where families can really slow down, but have so much fun together; immersed in an unspoilt natural setting…. where there are so many habitats to explore  (River, Ponds, Reeds, Woodland, and Meadows); on foot or by bike.

With an ever changing diary of planned activities; both indoors and outdoors…including pond dipping, listening to bats, bird ringing and meeting owls.

And, in the summer, you'll be able to hire binoculars and explorer backpacks too.

Then after working up an appetite, relax with fabulous real food, high up in the Glasshouse Café with stunning views across the Nature Reserve to the river; whether it's a light snack or hearty lunch with local specialities, (locally sourced ingredients when possible) and a kid's menu too. Or just find a secluded spot for a picnic, maybe next to the river.

Finally, on your way out, pop in to the gift shop; full of wildlife memories and things to support wildlife when you get home. You may even want to get a Wildlife Trust family membership; a great way to stay with us protecting wildlife.

NEW this year the site now has an osprey platform and we hope to attract one or even two of these stunning birds of prey to the site. We have also planted a living willow maze which will grow over the years and provide a fun place to play for children of all ages.
