What Dr Johnson said about London in the 18th Century could
equally be applied to the Forest of Dean today. You don't
have to be active, just curious, to appreciate the extraordinary
diversity of activities available in this vibrant rural playground.
Come inside and see what's on offer- you won't be disappointed.
You can move through the Forest on foot, taking in wildlife,
artworks, ancient woods and stunning flora as you go; on horse
or bike through waymarked paths, immune from cars, encountering
the overgrown remnants of a faded industrial age; by boat
down its twin boundaries the Severn and Wye, or by coach on
still-quiet roads, your journey enhanced by the erudition
of our local Guides.
And if you're staying
..and wondering what to do
about: archery, falconry, abseiling, cycling, caving, deer
watching, golfing, off road driving, quad biking,riding, rock
climbing, or kayaking? Alternatively you can visit the numerous
attractions and museums the area has to offer, working collieries,
steam railways, craft shops, iron age caves, formal gardens,
a staggeringly diverse collection - all within 30 minutes
drive of the heart of the Forest.
