WWT Welney Wetland Centre

Welney Wetland Centre is the place to watch one of nature's most magical sights - the winter gathering of up to 9,000 swans and ducks arriving from the Arctic.

But the centre isn't just a winter destination, with vast flocks of wetlands wildlife to spot throughout the year - including summer waders, dragonflies and avocets - and stunning walks along the Ouse Washes.

Welney Wetland Centre is located 12 miles north of Ely, 26 miles north of Cambridge and 33 miles east of Peterborough. It is 2 miles south of Welney village turning off the A1101 at the New Bedford Suspension Bridge, signposted Ten Mile Bank.

Occasionally, the A1101 between Welney Village and Suspension Bridge floods and is closed to cars. Under such circumstances, access to WWT Welney is always possible from Ely or Downham Market, off the A10.
