Llanelli Wetland Centre
WWT Llanelli offers unique and unforgettable learning experiences for you and your pupils. Explore the world of wetland habitats and species with hands-on investigations which stimulate and maximise pupils’ learning. Our curriculum-linked sessions are available in Welsh and English and suitable for all ages and abilities.
As well as taking part in a guided session there will be plenty of time for your group to explore the Centre. In order to make best use of this time, we have developed a range of self-guided resources which you can use to help extend your group’s learning.

"The staff were brilliant. They were very enthusiastic and engaged our children expertly with extremely enjoyable activities. The contributions of the children were valued and all were happy to take part. Each of our accompanying adults said that it had been a very enjoyable, well-organised and stress-free visit. Thank you very much. "

We will meet you on arrival, show you where you can store your bags and take you to your guided learning session.
Your pre-booked guided learning session will start shortly after arrival (usually about 10am). Most sessions last between 1 ½ hours and 2 hours. If you have booked a self-guided visit, we will meet you with any pre-booked resources you require, maps of the centre, and answer any queries so that you can make the most of your day.
We will provide an indoor space for you to eat your lunch, and there is a café if you would like to buy refreshments. The café will also top up your water bottles.
Our admission price includes full access to the centre for the day. Take advantage of the self-guided resources we have to offer (pre-book), spend some time hand feeding the birds, visit the shop or let off some steam in one of our play areas.
We have plenty of fun items for sale from 75p upwards. The shop is near our Flamingo Bay play area so you can send the children to the gift shop in smaller groups while the rest of the class let off some steam. We can also arrange with the gift shop to make you up goody bags for your visit. You will just need to tell us what you want in them, either during your pre-visit or when you arrive on the day.
Children will love to swing and climb in our fabulous flamingo themed outdoor play area, Flamingo Bay, located close to the centre building. Or head out to the wild wetland nature reserve and have fun crawling through the tunnels of Water Vole City.
Our ‘Explore’ play area near ‘Wiggly Wood’ offers balance beams and winding paths through the reed beds, while ‘Wiggly Wood’ is the ideal destination for some self-led den building.
Allow your learners to see the birds up close and feel like a proper ‘birder’. Binoculars are provided free of charge and come in a handy rucksack.
Many of our ducks and geese will come up for a nibble and many will even eat grain from your hand, if you approach the birds gently. A very valuable experience for children (and adults!)
Cost: £1.50 per bag
