Formby Beach and Nature Reserve
Enjoy a stroll along the miles of beaches or through the peaceful pine woodlands and look out for the endangered red squirrel.
The woods here are one of 17 red squirrel reserves in northern England; the reds are attracted by the large numbers of conifers, as they feed on the ripe pine cones.
The beautiful dunes form a part of one of the largest areas of dune habitat within the UK and provide an excellent home for many rare and endangered species such as the Natterjack Toad and the Northern Dune Tiger Beetle.

It may be worth checking out Formby Nature Reserve's website to see if there are any special events or seasonal fun things to do that may be going on during the day.
We do strongly suggest you contact Formby Nature Reserve before you set off on your family day out, just to make sure they are open and to confirm admission prices, as there is nothing worse than disappointed kids in the back of your car after a long journey.
