Discover a safe haven of wide-open spaces bursting with wetland nature. From charismatic resident species, like kingfishers and egrets, to seasonal arrivals - there is always something new to experience.

See some of the most endangered ducks, swans and geese in the world, and meet our fabulous flock of coral-pink Caribbean flamingos - you can’t miss them!

Fill your lungs with fresh air and get ready to explore our extraordinary wetland paradise, whatever the weather. With peaceful wetland hideouts and all kinds of habitats and species of wildlife to discover, a trip to WWT Llanelli truly is a feast for all of the senses.

For energetic adventurers, we have got everything you need for an unforgettable day out. Den building, Swan's Nest Maze, Watervole City, and lots of outdoor play areas for all ages.

This year, you can also reimagine the wonder of wetlands and nature through the eyes of the UK's best-loved illustrator. Drawn to Water: Quentin Blake at WWT is an exciting year- long partnership with a new trail map for every season. Collect an illustrated guide full of Quentin Blake's drawings and discover the joys of our wonderful wetland world throughout the seasons.

The paths and walkways that span our 500-acre site are wide and flat, with the vast majority suitable for buggies, wheelchairs and mobility scooters. Where a path is unsuitable for wheels, alternative routes are given. We have a mobility scooter available to hire, so please call ahead to reserve it. There is a small charge for hire to cover our maintenance costs.
