If you are looking for a perfect day out with the kids with a difference then look no further than Formby Nature Reserve. Situated next to the sea, the nature reserve is one of the largest sand dune expanses within the country and is the perfect place for the kids to explore as well to learn about nature as well. Go on a woodland walk through the beautiful pine woods and see if you can spot the very rare Red Squirrel, wander the dunes and discover prehistoric footprints as well as natterjacks and the Northern Dune Tiger Beetle. During the busy times of the year there are even refreshment facilities. Toilets are available at the entrance.
