From exciting visitor attractions, to free things to do in Gloucestershire, to things to do with the kids in Gloucestershire, there are endless possibilities in this amazing county. To the east, the Cotswolds are the very essence of England, with chocolate-box villages and rolling hills. To the west, the Wye Valley and the Forest of Dean offer the promise of adventure. In Gloucestershire, you can meet birds of prey, follow in the footsteps of Harry Potter and walk among the treetops, you can canoe, climb and explore, and you can relax and enjoy nature. Here some ideas for things to do in Gloucestershire, when you stay at our Forest of Dean location.
Learn about the flora and fauna of the ancient Forest of Dean with your Forest Ranger as your guide. Set off on a Nocturnal Adventure, when you might spot wild boar, fallow deer and barn owls. Go paddle boarding or pony trekking, hire bikes and explore the woodland trails or tackle the Adventure Challenge. All these Gloucestershire activities can be booked with us in advance when you stay at Forest of Dean.
