Attraction Information

Dive into the wild at RSPB Saltholme Wildlife Reserve and Discovery Park.

Visits to the café and onsite shop will be the only time you spend indoors here! Get good and muddy on a nature trail, with introductions to the locals like gulls, hares and butterflies. You can also make your way to the wildlife garden to explore the sights, sounds and smells.

For some structure, kids can explore the adventure playground, while parents simply sit back and enjoy their beautiful surroundings.
