The Lodge Forest Visitor Centre

  • About

The gateway to Queen Elizabeth Forest Park, the Lodge Forest Visitor Centre has trails suitable for all, tree top adventures, a great café, toilets and plenty of information.

Enjoy panoramic views and scenic trails, from a gentle stroll to a waterfall past a monument commemorating the Women's Timber Corps, better known as the Lumberjills, to more strenuous routes through lofty woods and rocky crags.

This is a great place to watch wildlife – there’s the easy-to-reach Red Squirrel Hide as well as live wildlife camera feeds in the Visitor Centre, featuring ospreys, red squirrels, water voles and other amazing animals found in the Forest Park.

The Lodge is also home to the award winning Go Ape. If you want a bird’s eye view of the forest or to leap through the canopy like a red squirrel, then this is the place to be.
