We wanted to share with you some of Green Motion’s favourite Eco-Centred attractions for you to visit this summer, across the UK.
The Living Rainforest - https://livingrainforest.org/
The Living Rainforest is an attraction based in Newbury run by the ‘Trust for Sustainability’. This organisation’s main aim is to educate visitors about why rainforests are ‘vital for a healthy future’ and promote the benefits of a more sustainable future for our planet. Although environmental education is the main purpose of the trust, the park itself boasts hundreds of animals from around the world and a multitude of opportunities to get up close and personal with many endangered species.
Green Motion love’s this parks ethos and highly recommends The Living Rainforest as the perfect eco friendly day out. This attraction is easily accessible from all Green Motion Central London locations, with the shortest journey from Green Motion Heathrow.
The Royal Botanic Gardens - https://www.rbge.org.uk/
Set in Northern Edinburgh, the Royal Botanical Gardens provide the perfect environmentally friendly day out for those renting from Green Motion Edinburgh or Edinburgh Waverley with a journey under 10 minutes from both stations.
Green Motion advises that you spend a whole day exploring the site as its not just plants on offer. The Botanical Gardens as well as being aesthetically astounding, also acts as a research centre for plant genetics and conservation which is ofcourse vital for the protection of both the plants themselves and the animals that rely on their shelter and nutrients.
The Green Dragon Eco Farm - https://www.greendragonecofarm.co.uk/
Green Motion loves the ideology behind the Green Dragon Eco Farm and highly recommends that you take an afternoon to learn about the rare animals that live there and how the staff care for and conserve these limited breeds.
This Eco Farm is less than an hours journey from Green Motion Luton and is well worth the short trip to experience the life of an Eco farmer.
Birmingham Eco Park- https://www.bbcwildlife.org.uk/EcoPark
Described as a ‘secret wildlife oasis’ in the centre of Birmingham, The ‘Birmingham and Black country Eco Park’ is a must see. The centre has dedicated itself to re-creating and conserving natural habitats for a vast variety of animals within a city setting in order to educate the masses on the importance of protecting wildlife.
Green Motion Birmingham is just a 20-minute drive from the park and is highly recommended by locals and our staff.
Windmill Hill Farm - http://www.windmillhillcityfarm.org.uk/
The Windmill Hill Farm is located just a 20-minute drive from Green Motion Bristol and guarantees to be a day of fur, fun, crafting and conservation education! The farm boasts lavish gardens and a café serving food using products from the farm.
The majority of the site can be accessed for free but additional charges may apply for certain activities such as pottery painting and short courses.
