Walthamstow Wetlands seeks to provide equal opportunity for all to enjoy the nature reserve and visitor facilities. There are four disabled parking bays available and the parking for blue badge holders is free of charge.



The Engine House and main concrete pathway through the site are accessible for wheelchair users and those with walking difficulties. As a nature reserve the remaining pathways on the wetlands site are dirt track so may be uneven or muddy in places. The Engine House has a platform lift, solely for the use of disabled visitors and there are accessible toilets with ramp entry.


Assistance Dogs

Please be advised that trained assistance dogs on duty are welcome, but in order to protect the sensitive habitat and drinking water supply, we cannot allow other dogs or pets of any kind on site, as the wildlife may become distressed.
