Get the wow factor this spring at our amazing places and spaces across the North West. Unlock secrets, discover stories, see nature come back to life and enjoy adventures - non stop family fun every day. Try stepping into the Edwardian era at Lyme Park, getting lost in a Victorian maze at Speke Hall, spotting a hawfinch at Sizergh or dressing up as a knight or princess at Wray Castle.

Get out and about enjoying freedom in the fresh air this spring. Walk with a cloudless blue sky amidst some fantastic scenery in the Lakes. Try Fell Foot on the shores of Lake Windermere or Aira Force, an impressive 65ft waterfall. Blow the cobwebs away in the coastal air at Formby or, if you’re feeling fit, join a jogging group at Lyme Park. For relaxation, simply take in the changing views and colours of our gardens.
