Winter Wonderland WeekendExperience the magic of a festive visit to Father Christmas and his huskies at WWT London Wetland Centre this December. Children (age eight and under) can enjoy a free husky sleigh ride and have their photos taken with the cuddly dogs as a special seasonal souvenir. The Winter Wonderland Weekend also boats a cosy Santa's Grotto set among firs and pine trees where Father Christmas will be giving out goody bags to children with the help of Merlin the Magician and two splendid shire horses, Griffin and Pride. Christmas arts and crafts sessions are on offer too, while guests can stretch their legs with a wintery stroll around the scenic walkways set amongst the lakes, meadows and ponds of this 105-acre wildlife oasis in Barnes. The Water's Edge Cafť will have festive treats for sale, such as mince pies and mulled wine. Talking of wine - the grown-ups can take part in wine tastings throughout the weekend, while for the children, there'll be Christmas tastings of old-fashioned sweets and chocolates.

About WWT London Wetland Centre

A mosaic of created wetland habitats spread over 43 hectares, developed on the site of a disused Victorian reservoir, forms the site of the London Wetland Centre.
