Drawn to Water: Quentin Blake at WWT Martin Mere

Pull on your boots and discover the magic of wetlands this autumn with Quentin Blake's illustrations as your guide.

Quentin says 'Visitors will be walking with me, and I like to think of myself walking with them. I shan't mind if I get my feet wet.'

Pick up one of our Drawn to Water illustrated trails and explore the seasonal natural highlights, from quiet spots with breathtaking views to close up wildlife encounters.  Spend time with friends and family and engage your senses as you experience uplifting autumnal colours, the crunch of leaves underfoot and the sounds of migrating birds.  

Unlock your creativity and explore wetland nature through the range of art and illustration activities for all ages and abilities, inspired by Quentin Blake's wonderfully distinctive drawings.  And if, like Quentin, you're inspired by wetlands, why not enter the national art competition to win a unique print.
