Venue type: Outdoor

Birches Valley Forest Centre is all about back to basics fun. Whether that be fishing or following the Gruffalo trail, your brood are sure to enjoy getting outdoors and active.

Families can have a go at orienteering, horse riding and enjoy a great, big adventure play area. Whip around the forest bike trails or take the tech up a notch and explore via segway! There’s a fantastic Go Ape high ropes experience plus big thumbs up for the fact that the whole family is invited, including dogs! They even have water bowls located below benches for when you and your furry friend need a quick pant and power up.

The top spot, however, has to go to their Gruffalo trail, where fans of the classic tale can delve deep into the wood. Be sure to collect your child activity back from the Go Ape cabin which has all the essential tools for a Gruffalo hunt: evidence collection bag, activity cards, stickers and of course where would any detective be without their magnifying glass?
