Attraction Information

Marston Vale Forest Centre is set in the stunning and award-winning Millennium Country Park and is perfect for a family day out. Explore the 8km of trails around the park and hidden wonders such as the willow huts, with creatures to be spotted on your adventure- there's plenty to do!

Trek to the Wetlands Nature Reserve to witness beautiful views from the bird hides, and see how many animals you can spot. Then get your heart rate going on the Woodland Walkway by ascending all the way through the trees for stunning panoramic views of the Forest.

Grab a quick bite to eat at the Café, where you can even bring your little furry pal along too, as dogs are welcome outside and water bowls are provided. For added entertainment check out what activities and events the centre have on for children, like the Forest Family Fun Day! All money spent at the centre goes towards helping maintain the beauty of Marston Vale Forest, so you can have a fab day whilst giving back to a great cause.
