Barnes Wetland Centre

The London Wetland Centre is a 105 acre wildlife haven with many beautiful walkways set amongst lakes, ponds and meadows. It is home to many species of birds, bats, snakes, amphibians and insects, and you can spot wildlife from various tranquil "hides". Its a real oasis in the midst of the "Big Smoke" and great for kids to run free and explore, and for picnicking . There is a fab playground section for kids called "Explore", its got giant water vole tunnels, zip lines, a climbing wall, interactive water play area and fountain sprinkler to get them soaking! There is also an indoor 'Discover' section the "Pond Zone". All in all, an awesome day out, especially if the weather is good :)

Yes this is in London!!
