WWF Experience and Tours

The WWF Experience

Featuring four interactive zones, the WWF Experience is a visitor centre and exciting exhibition that brings to life the secrets of the natural world, and the threats it faces.

Each zone focuses on one key theme: forests, rivers, oceans and wildlife. Explore the touch screens and find out more about each diverse natural environment. Learn about WWF projects around the world and the personal stories of the people involved.

Featuring fascinating films from the wild, enhanced by a soundtrack by award-winning BBC composer William Goodchild, each zone allows you to immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of nature.
Screens around the Experience also provide information about how the building was built, as well as real-time information about its environmental performance.

Based in the centre of Woking, we're easy to get to and are open Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm, so come and visit us for a fun, interactive and educational experience.

NEW Treasure Hunt for the summer!

What do flamingoes eat to make them pink?  How long can a sperm whale hold it's breath for when diving for food? What animal sheds its skin and then eats it afterwards?!

Test your knowledge on our new treasure hunt.  Find the answers to each of the questions as you explore the different zones in the WWF Experience ...and win a medal!

Tours of the Living Planet Centre

The Living Planet Centre is a multi award-winning building at the forefront of sustainable design and construction.

In May 2014 the Living Planet Centre achieved the award of BREEAM Outstanding, confirming its place as one of the greenest buildings in the UK. In July 2015 it was awarded with a RIBA National Award, recognising its architectural significance too.
Booking a tour of the building will give you behind-the-scenes access to WWF's UK headquarters. You will find out all about the story of the Living Planet Centre, how we work and how, through the smart use of design, materials and technology, we have created a state-of-the-art building with minimal environmental impact.
