Mums go free for Mother's Day

WWT Castle Espie Wetland Centre, 78 Ballydrain Road, Comber, County Down, BT23 6EA
Female mallard with ducklings.


Treat your mum to a relaxing day out at Castle Espie.

Spring is a brilliant time to visit the centre, with the gardens in bloom, butterflies and dragonflies flitting over the ponds and tiny ducklings waddling after their mothers. While you're here, why not treat mum to a coffee and cake in the café, or pick up a gift from the shop?

Give a big thank you to mums, step mums and foster mums for all that they do. This amazing treat is the perfect way to show wonderful mums just how special they are.
