Things to do

Walking in the woodland is the perfect way to get some fresh air and explore some of the area's most natural landscapes. 

The sandy soil provides a good walking surface, allowing access to many of the wood's tracks and public footpaths throughout the year. 

Bourne Wood is also next to Farnham Heath, a local RSPB reserve, so there are bird watching opportunities for wildlife enthusiasts!
