Our Spring Family Day Ticket Offer in the North West

Spring is on its way and there’s nothing like making use of the warmer weather and sunny days than getting out and about with a trip to somewhere new! To mark the beginning of the new season, we’ve come up with some great day-out ideas for our North West bus-riders to take advantage of!

 

Knowsley Safari Park

 

Your best chance to get face-to-face with the world’s wildest beasts, without even leaving the North West, Knowsley Safari Park is home to over 700 amazing animals. For close to half a century, the park has been giving locals the chance to witness lions, elephants, giraffes and more go about their daily routine.

There are a number of themed zones in the safari park, introducing different species from different parts of the world. Amongst the most popular routes is the Tiger Trail, where you can witness these magnificent giant cats prowl.

The park has strong links to conservation groups, helping to protect endangered species, and provide a greater chance of survival. Additionally, close links to the universities of Liverpool and Chester mean that the next generation of animal carers are being trained up in the company of these amazing animals.

Buses to catch: 10 or 10A, or the 89

 

Sea Life Centre at intu Trafford Centre

If you prefer your animals a little more on the aquatic side, there is the Sea Life Centre @intu Trafford Centre. Explore underwater paths, and witness amazing marine mammals and fish dart and splash around you.

Amazing for children, the centre has a number of educational activities and resources, including the Turtle Beach Experience. Witness the lifecycle of turtles from the egg to the sea, and VIP tickets even give you the chance to feed these fascinating creatures.

And for the brave amongst you, head to Shark Shipwreck, where the underwater predators glide through the deep blue. One of the world’s most fascinating and extraordinary animals, coming face-to-face with sharks is a truly unforgettable experience.

Buses to catch: Get the 245 or 247 to Trafford Centre
