With a wide range of things to do and see, including 5 onsite galleries exploring the history of the Forest from the Ice Age to the present day; a reconstructed Victorian cottage; a charcoal burner's camp; an adventure playground; a chainsaw carving demonstration pitch; a variety of animals and an onsite gift shop; there's always something new and exciting to interest, inspire or surprise you.
With a full programme of special events, exhibitions, art shows and educational workshops across the year, it's a great day out for all the family.
And if that's not enough, then you can always sample the homemade snacks and cakes served in the heritage cafe overlooking the millpond.
