There’s something for everyone with the brand new Forest of Dean Discovery Pass.

The Discovery Pass is a new venture for the Forestry Commission opening the door to more visitors and offering those already using our woodlands an even better deal.

The new pass represents excellent value for money – parking for the whole year at all Forestry Commission car parks in the Forest of Dean, as well as a whole host of benefits including 20% off at Go Ape (nationwide offer, conditions apply), vouchers for money off at Perrygrove Railway and Tree Top Walk plus 2 for 1 entry to Puzzlewood.

More great offers and benefits will come on stream via a seasonal e-newsletter packed with the latest news and events - so you get to be the first to hear what’s going on in your local woodlands.

The Discovery Pass costs 20 in the Forest of Dean and is available from 29 March. Buy yours in person at Forestry Commission Office, Bank House, Coleford or on site at Forest Connections, Beechenhurst or at Pedalabikeaway. Also available online at

The Discovery Pass can be used by up to two vehicles registered at the same address.
From 29 March, day parking at Beechenhurst, Symonds Yat, Cannop and Mallards Pike will cost 3.50 for the Spring/Summer months and 3.00 for the months November to February inclusive.
