Start your natural adventure!

Brockholes is the Trust's flagship nature reserve, a transformed quarry site located straight off junction 31 of the M6 at Preston.

Now a mosaic of habitats reminiscent of old Lancashire, Brockholes has been designed to introduce people to wildlife and bring you closer to the nature on your doorstep.

PLEASE NOTE: The Visitor Village will be closed every Monday and Tuesday until 31 March. The reserve itself will be open as usual.

Plan your visit


Relax in our floating Reedbed Restaurant and enjoy the beautiful lake view.


Children can swing, climb, balance and bounce whilst you relax on one of our picnic benches. 

Join in

Here at Brockholes we host a jam-packed events schedule, with something to delight all ages whatever the weather!


From pocket money treats and books to candles and luxury chocolates, you're sure to find the perfect souvenir.
