Adventure with a stunning backdrop

Cannock Chase is the smallest Area of Outstanding Beauty in mainland Britain and promises to deliver big time fun and adventure. Within an hours’ drive of Birmingham, a stone's throw away from Trentham and easy to reach distance from Leicester, it’s the perfect opportunity to escape the city for the day!

Once you climbed and whizzed your way around the trees you can explore the woodland on one of the many walking trails. Hire or bring your own bikes to enjoy the miles of cycling and mountain biking trails. 

There’s something to suit all ages and abilities with relaxing family rides through the picturesque valleys to the dedicated single-track of Follow the Dog and the Monkey Trail. For children there’s a play area and a walking trail with Gruffolo sculpture, three bears chairs, fairy trees and Play Houses.

 Look out for the Zog Activity Trail and learn as Zog did at dragon school. More steam to blow off? Bring a ball and enjoy a kick about in the large grassy clearing and picnic area. There’s also the Birches Valley Café if you want to grab a drink and delicious culinary treat. Dogs are welcome – there’s even an activity trail for your four-legged friends!

how to get here

things to do in cannock

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO

  • Wear sensible clothes for adventure.
  • Footwear must be sturdy and suitable for the outdoors. No sandals, slip-off shoes, open toes or heels.
  • Gloves are a good idea. Either bring a pair or you can buy them at the cabin on the day.

MAKE A DAY OF IT

  • Hire or bring your bikes to explore the cycling and mountain bike trails.
  • Explore the beautiful woodland on the walking trails.
  • Let the children loose on the children’s adventure playground.
  • Bring the dog and tackle the doggy activity trail!
  • The course was really good and a fun challenge, what I was a little disappointed in was the fact you were left alone to complete the course. From reading reviews I expected someone to be present whilst you went round the course to help you and encourage you if needed.

  • My son and I enjoyed it but it was a shame that the Tarzan swing broke at the end and we couldn’t do it. Quite pricey for what it is and paying £6 for parking was disgusting!!

    Sarah Hodson

  • Friendly helpful reassuring staff. All staff were enthusiastic and looked like they wanted to be there, unlike some places. My 10 year old daughter got scared as did another child part way round. In both cases staff on the ground spotted the children and encouraged them. When necessary they came up to assist. Excellent.

    Rachel Betts

  • Fantastic way to get children into the outdoors whilst also facing both mental and physical challenges. A Great Day

  • Great staff at Cannock, Jack, our guide, was very friendly and helpful. My Girlfriend had a bit of a fear of heights related wobble half way along the first section, once down she said she couldn’t go any further and with no fuss Go Ape offered a refund for her ticket. More than expected to be honest. Definitely recommend to others.
