Gruffalo adventures in the deep dark wood!

Join the fun this summer and take part in the self-led Gruffalo activity trails from 11 April to 30 September.

To mark the 15th anniversary The Gruffalo has partnered with Forestry Commission England to launch 28 activity trails. Aimed to encourage children and families to explore the environment around them, learn more about trees and natural habitats and to respect and enjoy the British woodlands and forests.
On June 7, a series of unique Gruffalo sculptures will be unveiled at 15 of the trail sites. Help the Gruffalo celebrate his birthday by throwing your very own picnic at a woodland near you. Sign up to receive a free party pack.
