WWT Washington Wetland Centre

Washington Wetland Centre

In light of the most recent government measures to control the spread of Covid-19 virus WWT Washington will be closed to the public until further notice. 

Washington Wetland Centre area is home to exotic birds, amazing insects, beautiful wild scenery and so much more. Here you can experience wonderful wildlife up close and have a great family day out as you discover 45 hectares of stunning wetlands and woodland on the River Wear.

This recreated wetland provides a 'stop over' and wintering habitat for migratory waterbirds after their passage over the North Sea. It is a haven for curlew and redshank and a breeding ground for flocks of herons.

The Wetland Discovery Centre offers both a window on the wide range of wildlife and a programme of art exhibitions.

The Washington Wetland Centre is one of the North East's biggest conservation success stories offering both a window on the wide range of wildlife and a programme of art exhibitions.
