Gruffalo Spotters

Find your nearest Gruffalo Spotters trail

Launch dates vary between forests. Find details of your nearest trail in the list below.

After downloading The Gruffalo Spotter app follow clues along our interactive trail, tracking down signs of the characters from The Gruffalo.

Clues will lead to five different footprint markers in the forest for each one of the characters from the book including the unmistakable footprint of the gruffalo!

When you spot the markers point your phone's camera at them, using the app to bring the characters to life. Thanks to augmented reality technology, the characters will appear to blend in within the forest around you!
