FOREST OF DEAN, BEECHENHURST

The ancient Forest of Dean is one of the few remaining royal forests in England. It’s mystical, magical settings were inspiration for the Tolkien book so you can expect something special as you explore from your Treetop Adventure vantage point.

This is a forest designed for family fun - you’ll need a day to discover all it has to offer. Walk, run or cycle – there are routes for all eventualities.

Discover the famous Sculpture trail which is a four mile long walk, featuring sculptures created by artists to interpret the Forest environment and the history of this very unusual landscape. 

There’s a secret world beneath the forest at Clearwell Caves.

With nine show caverns there plenty of exciting things to discover.

Head to Beechenhurst Lodge Visitor Centre once you’ve worked up an appetite.

There’s a café, children’s play area and a climbing tower. 

If you’re still up for more exploring sit back and relax as you enjoy a steam train ride through the forest on the Dean Forest Railway.
