First up, take a stroll along Formby Beach. This stunning stretch of coastline is famous for its high dunes that offer panoramic views across the Irish Sea. Not only is it a great place for sunbathing and sandcastles, but it’s also a haven for wildlife, including the rare Natterjack Toad. If you’re feeling adventurous, explore the nearby pine forests and woodland tracks.
For those who prefer a more laid-back activity, head to Formby Hall Golf Resort & Spa. This beautiful location offers more than just a round of golf. From their ‘Top Tracer’ driving range to the spa’s Himalayan Salt Sauna and Rasul Mud Steam Room, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

If you’re looking for a truly unique experience, visit the Formby National Trust site and discover prehistoric footprints. These mud and sand imprints offer a fascinating glimpse into the past of Formby, revealing the footprints of hunter-gatherers and creatures that once roamed the area thousands of years ago.

For families with younger children, Farmer Ted’s Adventure Farm is a must-visit. The UK’s only Shaun the Sheep adventure farm has everything from indoor and outdoor play areas to a mini beasts centre and an adventure maze. The ‘Ed Shed’ also gives a fun and informative insight into farm life.

After a fun-filled day out, you’re sure to have worked up an appetite! Fortunately, Formby has plenty of fantastic dining options to choose from. Suay Restaurant offers delicious pan-Asian cuisine, while The Left Bank Brasserie serves up delicious Mediterranean dishes in a relaxed setting. For Italian food, head to Don Luigi, which is perfect for a more upscale experience while still being child-friendly. Shantii Formby specializes in classic Indian dishes with a contemporary twist, and Sorrento brings a slice of Italy to Formby with fresh pasta and pizza. If you’re looking for something truly special, Emily’s is a great choice for modern British cuisine made with locally sourced ingredients and served in a stylish and elegant setting.

So there you have it – a guide to making the most of your visit to our studio in Formby. We hope that this list inspires you to plan a fantastic day out with your loved ones!
