Lancashire opens new natural visitor attraction

Date Posted: 18/03/2011

Nature enthusiasts can look forward to the opening of Lancashire’s new natural visitor attraction, Brockholes.

Scheduled to open at Easter, Brockholes is promoted as an unreserved reserve, featuring rich habitats attracting a vast array of birds, mammals and insects. Home to what is reportedly the UK’s first floating visitor centre, the site also features lakes, trails and woodlands for group visitors of all ages to explore, in addition to separate family and specialist hides. The Visitor Centre includes an education and interpretation area, a shop, children’s play area, cafe and conference facilities.

Entry is free to the reserve and visitor centre, and groups are entitled to a range of benefits, including free familiarisation visits for GTOs, a free meet and greet for coach parties, and group menus available at the Visitor Centre cafe. Pre-booked guided tours can also be arranged for a fee.
