This magnificent woodland has many miles of ancient wood banks, building remains and ancient trees. The 'druids', or veteran oaks, are rare and amazing wildlife habitats, and some of the old oaks are over 600 years old. See what you can spot on your visit to this medieval royal hunting forest.

Delve into Bernwood Forest's historic past with a walk around this rich woodland, located on the outskirts of Oxford.

Made up of Shabbington and Waterperry Wood, Bernwood Forest was once part of The Royal Hunting Forest of Bernwood and received royal protection for over 700 years! The Bernwood Jubilee Way, part of the project to reinforce the identity of the hunting forest, runs through a section of the wood on its 61 mile journey within the Ancient Forest Boundary.
