Forest Activity Bag

Forest Activity BagIf you’re looking for a fun way to explore the forest then why not hire one of our Forest Activity Bags?

Each bag contains some fantastic tools and instructions so you can go on your own woodland adventure.


Forest Activity BagBecome a nature detective and use the binoculars to spot wildlife up in the trees. Go on a mini-beast hunt to see what’s crawling, hopping and scuttling in the undergrowth. Explore the forest and discover more about how it’s used and what animals live here. 

Forest Activity BagWe’ll give away a free bag of goodies with each bag, which includes:

Bug viewer, pen, bookmark, magnifying glass, tree identification leaflet, stickers and hedgehog cuddly toy.


This activity normally takes around 2-4 hours and is suitable for children age 5+ with adult help.

You can hire a Forest Activity Bag from the Visitor Centre for £5.
