Welsh Wildlife Centre

North Pembrokeshire

Bordering the River Teifi just south of Cardigan, the Teifi Marshes Nature Reserve is a haven for kingfishers, owls, otters, badgers and butterflies. You can find out more about the critters that live in the surrounding river, marsh and woodland habitats at this striking glass-walled information centre, which also houses a shop and cafe. There are several short waymarked trails nearby, most of them wheelchair accessible.
