Gruffalo sculptures

If you venture into the deep dark wood you may bump into the Gruffalo, Gruffalo's Child and their friends too... 

Fifteen lucky forests have been joined by a giant wooden Gruffalo. Each Gruffalo has been carved in a different position - the one at Wyre Forest is fast asleep! Now, you will also be able to come and meet the Gruffalo's friends too.

Find a Gruffalo sculpture at one of the forests below. Follow the link for information about the woodland and planning your visit.

New: visit one of Gruffalo's friends (coming soon!)
