Breeze through busy London to an oasis of wildlife splendour and discover the magic of our wetlands this autumn with Quentin Blake's illustrations as your guide.

Quentin says "Visitors will be walking with me, and I like to think of myself walking with them. I shan't mind if I get my feet wet."

Pick up one of our Drawn to Water illustrated trails and explore our seasonal natural highlights, from quiet spots with breathtaking views to close up wildlife encounters.

Spend time with friends and family and engage your senses as you experience uplifting autumnal colours, the crunch of leaves underfoot and the sounds of migrating birds
Unlock your creativity and explore wetland nature through our range of art and illustration activities for all ages and abilities, inspired by Quentin Blake's wonderfully distinctive drawings. And if, like Quentin, you're inspired by wetlands, why not enter our national art competition to win a unique print, launching in September.

Capture the memories of your autumn wetland adventures with a visit to our shop to discover beautiful Quentin Blake books, mugs and prints to take home.
