Wet and Wild

Reimagine the wonder of wetlands and nature through the eyes of the UK’s best-loved illustrator: Quentin Blake.

Head to the wonderful WWT Washington Wetland Centre where you can collect an illustrated guide full of Quentin Blake’s drawings and then set off on a journey around their wetland world. Featuring a selection of little before seen wetland-themed images from Sir Quentin’s personal archive, the beautifully illustrated guides accompanying the trails will take visitors on a journey around WWT Washington’s wetlands, woodlands and meadows, experiencing nature in new and unexpected ways with the help of his distinctive drawings. Running until February 2024, each of the three trails – spring/summer, autumn and winter – will come with its own unique illustrated guide to collect and keep – including a detachable bookmark. More information from their website, below.
