A Forestry England membership is specific to the forest or woods chosen during purchase. It refers to the whole pack and it's contents upon joining or renewing, including parking sticker (if necessary to access parking at the chosen forest), membership card and vouchers (where applicable).
Our membership used to be called Discovery Pass. Please refer to our Membership Frequently Asked Questions for information about the change.
Membership can only be used for one of your registered vehicles at any given time. At sites where there is automatic number plate recognition (ANPR), this will be managed automatically. At sites where a parking sticker is used for member parking, a single parking sticker is provided (for your chosen forest). The sticker must be transferred between registered vehicles. Once one of your vehicles is parked, any additional vehicles (including any registered ones) will be charged the normal parking tariff for that visit.
The membership card is used to access a range of benefits/discounts.
Temporary membership document is the letter we send to you by email - only for online or phone purchases. This temporary membership document let's you enjoy visiting the forest straight away, while waiting for your full membership pack to arrive by post.
Vouchers are sometimes used for discounts with our partners and needed in addition to showing your membership card.
