We’re sorry all places on the walk have been taken.


A walk around the recently opened Walthamstow Wetlands. Set to be Europe’s largest urban wetland, Walthamstow Wetlands is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). It also forms part of the Lee Valley Special Protection Area. Walthamstow Wetlands provides a special home to many species. Here you can enjoy some peace and quiet while getting close to nature and observe birds both resident and rare.

As this is a nature reserve it is not possible to bring dogs on this walk.

There are many opportunities for bird-watching so binoculars, if you have them, might be useful.


The Walthamstow Wetlands Visitor Centre with toilets and Café is situated in the Engine House halfway through the route.

Please consider the weather forecast and the type of walk you are planning to join and wear appropriate footwear and clothing. We recommend that you bring a drink as there may not always be opportunities to purchase refreshments.

Advice Note:

The ground can sometimes be slightly muddy and uneven in places but it is predominantly flat, hard surfaced and therefore suitable for buggies and wheelchairs.
