RSPB Ribble Discovery Centre

Our lakeside location, just a few minutes' walk from the mud, saltmarsh and sand dunes of the mighty Ribble, is the perfect base to explore the seaside with us.
The Ribble Discovery Centre, which we run in partnership with Fylde Borough Council, offers a unique hands-on and fun learning experience. With programmes ranging from mud dipping to minibeasting, and coasts to plants, there are opportunities for all key stages.
Our centre has a large learning space which you can use as a base for your visit. Within easy reach of this, there is a variety of interesting habitats, making a trip to the Ribble Discovery Centre a safe, yet exciting, coastal visit.
