Venue type: Outdoor

WWT Martin Mere Wetland Centre celebrates nature with wildlife walks, boat trips, an adventure play area and plenty of cute creatures. Just remember to bring your wellies!

Start by exploring their latest project, the wetland habitat Wild Walk. Visitors will be guided through the mud to the middle maze lodge, across the wobbly web bridge and straight up to the giant sculpture park - with lots of flora and fauna along the way. Next be sure to enjoy one of their award winning canoe tours. Be ferried or delve into the wetlands under your own speed on a self guided safari trip. To finish up let the kids run wild at the Rushes Adventure Play Area. It encourages natural play with sand flats, mini marshlands, cableways and a giant tree house!

Spring welcomes lots of little fluffy faces around the reserve, like chicks, goslings and cygnets. You’ll also be able to visit their adorable duckling nursery - a total must! As summer arrives, attend daily talks at the flamingo and white stork enclosures, or get stuck in at family otter feeds.
