If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre, or just want a day out to explore the beauty of South Wales, then we have a great activity for your stack – take a trip to Llanelli Wetland Centre, a massive sanctuary packed with amazing Welsh wetland nature and wildlife.
Where can I go outdoors in South Wales?
Nestled in the heart of Carmarthenshire, known as the ‘garden of wales’ for its abundance of green space, there’s no better place to get your dose of fresh air and stretch your legs by exploring this stunning wetland paradise. With 450 acres of lakes, woodlands, pools and lagoons, the Llanelli wetland centre has become one of the most popular places to unwind for Welsh locals. Come and say hello to some of the world’s rarest geese, ducks and swans, or come as the seasons change to witness the migration of these spectacular endangered bird species, or admire their fabulous flock of bright red Caribbean flamingos. The birds are notoriously friendly and are happy to feed from the hand, making a great way to destress and connect with your surroundings.
While mum and dad relax with the flamingos, let the kids run wild at the outdoor-play areas, with an obstacle course, maze, winding tunnels and plenty of other challenges to keep the young ones entertained. If you’re feeling hungry after your adventure, head to the Kingfisher coffee shop to relax with a delicious treat and drink, and pick up something to remember your trip from their gift shop. Llanelli Wetland centre makes a great day out for the family, friends or solo travellers with someone on offer for all.
