Martin Mere

Midweek Visiter - - Martin Mere -

FAM­I­LIES of all ages are in­vited to a week of Hal­loween-themed events for the Oc­to­ber half term (Oc­to­ber 20-28) at WWT Martin Mere Wet­land Cen­tre, Burscough.

From pump­kin carv­ing to broom­stick flight training and a spooky ca­noe ride, there’s plenty on of­fer for an ac­tion-packed fam­ily day out.

Bud­ding young pi­lots are in­vited to take part in our Broom­stick Flight Training ac­tiv­ity.

Hop on your broom­stick and ex­pe­ri­ence the in­cred­i­ble jour­ney Whooper swans make from Ice­land to Martin Mere with our in­ter­ac­tive mi­gra­tion ob­sta­cle course – look out for preda­tors, py­lons and wind tur­bines!

You can col­lect your broom­stick pilot li­cence and take a sou­venir pho­to­graph of your achieve­ment once you have fin­ished.

You can take part in the pump­kin hunt around the cen­tre grounds.

Grab a leaflet when you ar­rive, find all of the pump­kins carved with a let­ter to re­veal a se­cret word and re­ceive your pump­kin hunt sticker and choco­late treat!

You can also get in­volved with pump­kin carv­ing in our craft room – get the whole fam­ily to­gether and get cre­ative.

You’ll have ac­cess to all our usual walks and talks such as the daily ot­ter talk, the white stork talk and feed and our wild walk area will be open for those af­ter a muddy ad­ven­ture.

With a large play area for the young ones and a café sell­ing tasty treats and warm­ing drinks, a trip to Martin Mere re­ally is fun for all the fam­ily!

WWT Martin Mere is open every day from 9.30am to 6pm.

Sit­u­ated off the A59, it is sign­posted from the M61, M58 and M6.

The cen­tre is also ac­ces­si­ble via the South­port to Manch­ester and the Liver­pool to Pre­ston line by train from Burscough rail sta­tions.
