Thetford Forest is a patchwork of pines, heathland and broadleaves providing the ideal setting for a great day out, and a welcome refuge for a rich variety of animal and plant life.
Many of our visitors are attracted by the peace and tranquility of Thetford Forest as well as the wide range of recreation facilities.

There is something for everyone in the forest and the quieter sites provide a haven for wildlife - why not walk at Lynford around the Arboretum or lake. Visit the Desert Rats Memorial at High Ash or stroll through King's Forest.
Thetford Forest is a popular recreation destination with a high conservation value but it is also a busy working forest. Balancing the needs of people, wildlife and the local economy requires planning; take a look at our plans for the forest.
