The Living Planet Centre in Woking is the home of WWF-UK. As well as being the heart of the charity in the UK, it is also a beautiful education and visitor centre offering something for everyone.
The WWF Experience – a fun, interactive exhibition where you can discover more about the natural world and what we’re doing to protect it. Explore the four themed zones as you follow our treasure hunt and discover the hidden secrets of our rivers, oceans, forests and wildlife.
If you’re looking for something different to do during the school holidays, come along to one of our free creative family workshops that we run throughout the year. Places are limited so visit our website to book your place.
Want to see behind the scenes? Take a tour to hear about the sustainable design and eco-friendly technologies that makes this building so special. With plenty of environmental awards and credentials to its name – including BREEAM outstanding - it’s one of the greenest buildings in the UK. Book your place on our website.
Want to learn a little more about our planet? Our programme of public talks take a more detailed look at some of the challenges the world is facing and what we can do to help.
