Group visits

Posted in All

Winter is a great time of year to bring your group to WWT Martin Mere Wetland Centre.

Martin Mere offers unforgettable days out where your group can take it easy while getting close to fantastic wildlife. There’s something for everyone from hand feeding rare birds to spotting kingfishers, water voles and dragonflies while taking a relaxing stroll, watching wild swan and bird feeds, discovering our mischievous otters, fantastic flamingos, white storks and lots, lots more.

Centre Manager, Nick Brooks, said: “Martin Mere really does cater for all types of groups at this time of year – from photographers, bird watchers, U3A groups, WIs and care home residents.  Being outdoors is great for your health and being close to wildlife is even better, especially when you can see thousands of birds up close at our daily feeds from the comfort of warm hides. You can learn about the species from our wardens and then enjoy a warm dink in the café – all within close walking distance.”

We also have specially tailored group tours and events, welcoming visitor centres with cafes serving delicious home cooked food and shops brimming with gifts and souvenirs. Our site is fully accessible with ample, nearby coach parking, wide, flat paths and plenty of places to sit and relax while taking in the stunning surroundings.

If that’s not enough, there’s a range of excellent benefits for groups of 12 or more:

  • Discounted price to enter

  • Free coach parking
  • Free entry and refreshments for the coach driver
