WWT London Wetland Centre (also known as Barn Elms Reservoirs)


The Wetland Centre was built by The Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust on the site of the former Barn Elms reservoirs owned by Thames Water, prior to which the land was used for market gardens and allotments, and it had formerly been part of the Barn Elms estate. Outside the Peter Scott Visitor Centre is a bronze sculpture of Scott with two Bewick's Swans by Nicola Godden.
