We are not currently accepting room hire bookings for Centre for Wildlife Gardening and the New River Studio, as it is not practicable at present to comply with ‘Covid-secure’ guidelines.

When we are in a position to offer room hire again we will update this page. In the meantime we are carrying out a review of room hire rates, to ensure that these adequately cover London Wildlife Trust staff time and other costs.
