Learn at 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.
Keeping you and your learners safe
We continue to work hard to ensure that all learning visits are Covid-safe. We have always taken pride in our personal approach and we will work directly with you to ensure that your safety needs are met and any concerns addressed.
We are regularly updating our risk assessments for learning visits in line with the latest guidance. Your safety is our first priority.
Should you be unable to visit due to Coronavirus, we will allow you to re-book or cancel free of charge.
Informative and engaging, our curriculum-linked learning sessions at WWT Llanelli are based in the outdoors and are suitable for a range of ages and abilities. See the available sessions here.
Generation Wild is our new nature-connection project for schools and families. It is available free of charge to schools with over 30% of pupils eligible for free school meals. This includes free visits (and transport) to Llanelli Wetland Centre.
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.

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
