October half term activities at WWT Martin Mere Wetland Centre

With October half term already creeping up on us we have loads of activities going on at WWT Martin Mere Wetland Centre for the whole family to enjoy. The fun starts from Saturday 19 October to Sunday 3 November.

Visiting WWT Martin Mere is a great autumn day out with lots to see and do, from experiencing our everyday wildlife to getting involved in festive family activities.  We have a range of activities to keep everyone entertained:

Why not dive straight into the Halloween spirit and carve your own pumpkin with the kids. Creating your own scary faces! It’s only £3 a pumpkin or two for £5. Activity starts on 26 October Delve into the ponds and woods and see what you can find whilst pond dipping and bug hunting. Come and see our family of Asian short clawed otters out and about. Watch Ned and Thai with their three baby girls. Our new adventure play area is open all for children. Guaranteed fun for all ages. Our spectacular swan feeds are a must see. We are expected to have over 1000 swans this autumn and is something you must experience as the sound and sight of them are truly amazing! The swan feeds are everyday at 3pm and 3.30pm starting from 28 October Also explore the different habitats on our canoe safari and boat tours before it closes for the winter on the 3 November. The canoe safari is an activity you must take part in, it is one of our award winning experiences. Between 1pm and 4pm you can come take part in our family fun filled crafts in the Education Centre.   There are a number of fun activities to take part in this autumn for the entire family. Don’t miss out on these fantastic experiences that you can share with your children/grandchildren and make memories you can treasure.
