Enjoy a husky sleigh ride and donkey rides for children!

Get into the festive mood at WWT London Wetland Centre’s wonderful winter weekend! Children will be thrilled to hop aboard a husky sleigh ride, enjoy a donkey ride or help the Elves spread the Christmas spirit in the elves workshop.

Children can take a sleigh ride with the huskies: they’re lovely to look at but also working animals, so kids can experience the excitement of riding on a sleigh pulled by these adorable dogs.

Or you can take a donkey ride in the meadow, with the donkeys decked out in their Christmas finery – it makes a great photo!

Plus, join the elves as they get ready for the big day making decorations and small toys.  Drop into their workshop throughout the day to help them prepare and to make your own mini Christmas trees, badges and tree decorations. Some crafts may have a small charge.

Try your hand at throwing a wellie too. Free entry to all ages, the Stonz Wellie Throwing Competition can win you prizes on the day!

And if you’re looking to explore the reserve then follow our Twelve Days of Christmas trail along the lakes and meadows to find the twelve hidden stockings. Find them all and you’ll be able to complete the final verse of the song. Then relax over Christmas lunch in our Kingfisher Kitchen or enjoy burgers and bratwurst from the BBQ.

By enjoying a festive weekend with at WWT London Wetland Centre you’re also contributing towards their vital conservation work in the UK and around the world.

This is taking place on Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 December 2017.
