Step into a wilder world where wilderness and family-friendliness combine

Martin Mere Wetland Centre is a wonderful place for children of all ages to spend time outdoors and get close to nature.

Itís around an hourís drive from central Manchester, and is also accessible by train, and you can easily spend a good few hours there to make the journey worth the while. Our little girl loves getting up close with birds and animals and Martin Mere provides plenty of opportunities for interaction.

There are special viewing points to take in the masses of birds that live and flock there, as well as hides, plus there are lots of free roaming birds along the paths who can be tempted to come close with a special bag of feed!

Speaking of food, there are daily feeds and talks, including with the resident otters, so thereís lots of learning to be had for older children. Thereís also a cafe on site in case you get hungry yourself!

We are a very outdoorsy family, and Martin Mere is open every day except for Christmas Day, so we venture there in all weathers, but if youíd prefer to wait until Spring / Summer to visit youíll also be able to enjoy one of the on site boat tours for a small additional cost.

From 9th May until 24th June this year there will be a giant Lego animal trail which is sure to be popular, and there are other child friendly events throughout the year, such as reptile visits, an annual duck race and an Easter giant duck hunt!
