Alice Holt Forest is situated on the Hampshire/Surrey border and within a hours drive of West London, Reading, Southampton and Portsmouth. It covers 850 ha and its large size, variety of habitats and long history of careful management combine to make it an important home for wildlife, timber production and as a place for recreation.
The site provides an excellent safe environment for schools, uniformed groups and families to learn and explore in.
Whether you wish to book an organised guided visit, learn some bushcraft skills or organise your own visit then there are lots of opportunities and free downloadable resources for you.
Whether it is an educational school visit, a Brownie outing or birthday party there are plenty of opportunities to get outside and explore with our various learning partners. For more information please visit our Guided Learning and Providers page.
These are a great alternative to our guided programmes and there's also the option to run a self-guided afternoon after a guided morning session. If you are planning a self-guided visit please get in touch beforehand so we can help you get the most out of your visit and make you aware of any other activities in the forest which may affect your visit.
Whether you choose to lead your own visit or book onto one of our learning partners workshop's, there are plenty of opportunities for learning in the Forest for all ages and abilities. Click here to visit our Learning Resources page.
