Set within one of Britain’s Largest Remaining Ancient Forests.
Half the species of UK butterflies and moths can be found in our forest in Worcestershire.
Our adventure at Wyre Forest, near Kidderminster is home to some of the most ecologically significant woodlands in England.
If you’re looking for days out in Worcestershire, why not get in the Go Ape spirit taking in tree-top high ropes crossings and a wind-in-your-face zip wire in one of Britain’s largest remaining ancient woodlands? Wyre Forest is cared for by the Forestry Commission so there’s plenty of other activities for you and your tribe if you’re trying to find things to do near Worcester.
You can take in the sights and smells of the statuesque oak and fir trees that line the course for great days out, or even make a adventurous weekend of it and explore the 6000-acre forest.
“Oo oo ah ah” … Don’t forget to enjoy a cuppa in our very own Forest Cafe.
