A little jewel in the middle of Bidston, Tam O’Shanter is in the heart of the community, providing fun, education and volunteering opportunities for all ages. We encourage engagement with nature at every level and promote enhanced levels of mental and physical well-being through exercise, horticulture, outdoor activity, nature trails, scavenger hunts, regular events and more.
Situated on Bidston Hill on the Wirral, the Tam O’Shanter historic cottage and free urban farm is run by a charitable trust with the aim of providing an enjoyable and educational experience for kids and adults alike.
We aim to become the Wirral centre of excellence in wildlife care alongside managing, sustaining and developing our public access urban farm.
We provide a lifelong sanctuary for the animals in our care whilst committing to educating children and adults about how their food is grown and reared.
Who is this aimed at?
This is open to all.
The farm is open daily from 9:30am to 4:30pm except on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.
