The Living Planet Centre shows that, through the smart use of design, materials and technology, it’s possible to create a state-of-the-art building with minimal environmental impact.
BREEAM Outstanding status confirms its place as one of the greenest buildings in the UK, and the RIBA National Award, recognises its architectural significance. We’ve received awards for our concrete, wood and lighting too!
Booking a tour of the building will give you behind-the-scenes access to the home of WWF-UK. Find out the story of the Living Planet Centre, its special features and how we work.
Tours run every other Friday and last around 30minutes. Suggested donation £3
We offer bespoke tours to university students, clubs, businesses or any groups who have a keen interest in architecture, design, sustainable technology, or simply want to know more about the building and how we work.
Tours can be arranged for groups of 5 or more people at a time to suit you, and usually take approximately 45 minutes with time for questions. Our experienced team can tailor the tour around your interests, please give details at time of booking. Bespoke tours are charged at £5 per head.
Want to have a meeting for your group along with your tour? We have rooms available to hire too.
