Booked my three children to see Father Christmas at his grotto, travelling by boat. Booked in at reception and gave my relevant reference booking number. It had already cost me £8 per child to see Santa, upon arrival I was asked for my attendance booking, to cut a long story short they wanted to charge me an extra £32 to... More

Visited Martin Mere on a lovely, crisp, winters day, with kids aged 13 and 9 and grandparents. We paid £36 for 3 adults and 2 children, it is worth booking in advance as there is a 10% discount. Lovely, clean park with informative and helpful staff. We watched the otter feed and were lucky enough to see the 100's of... More

Fab day out with family & friends. Our party of 6 adults & 5 children under 10 thoroughly enjoyed our visit! Good, clean amenities and well maintained walkways. Staff were friendly and gave informative talks about the otters. Only downside was the 20 min queue for take away coffees- would have been better to have a separate till for drinks... More

Our second trip to Martin Mere very welcoming staff and volunteers. On our first visit we were lucky to see thousands of geese and swans which had arrived from Greenland some who use this as a stopping off point and others to stay. We were not disappointed on our December visit another wonderful day watching the feeding at 3pm. A... More

Took the grand children during the school holiday. Plenty for them to do. We particularly enjoyed the river cruise. Could be a bit more wheel chair friendly.

Always a pleasure to come over to Martin Mere especially when the Whooper swans are here and enjoy the swan feed at 3.00 pm every day. The new hide is certainly very comfortable and caters for disabled visitors and those who want to set up scopes etc. On hand as always are WWT volunteers to help with identification and the... More

I visited the Wetland Centre with my daughter, four grandchildren, another Mum and her three young children during the half term holidays. We were there for only about two hours but could easily have stayed much, much longer. There was plenty on our wonderful walk around the grounds to keep the children entertained. There was plenty of wildlife and interesting... More
