rsz_flamingos.jpg Washington Wetlands Reopening

The North East will soon be able to find solace from the latest lockdown by getting out into the 104 acres of big skies and beautiful wetland nature at WWT Washington Wetland Centre, which re-opens on Monday 12 April, subject to government confirmation.

The centre is planning to have online tickets available a week in advance on Tuesday 6 April on Washington’s website: wwt.org.uk/washington. To keep everyone safe and socially distanced, the wetland centre is managing numbers by asking every person who visits Washington to pre-book their tickets, including those who visit for free such as members, children under four and carers.

Visitors returning to the wetland centre can expect an array of seasonal spring delights, with birds such as avocet and grey heron nesting on Wader Lake, woodland birds including bullfinch and long-tailed tit displaying and mating in Hawthorn Wood, and flowers, insects and amphibians emerging each day! Hides will be open too, allowing you to get even closer to nature. While there are still some restrictions in place, you can be sure for a fantastic day out, whatever the weather!

To keep everyone safe, there will be daily limits on the number of visitors to Washington and booking is essential for all visitors. For full up-to-date information and to find out what facilities will be available nearer the time, please visit wwt.org.uk/Washington.
