Only 7 miles from the centre of Northampton, Salcey Forest offers fantastic learning opportunities for schools, groups and people of all ages and abilities.

With a café and a variety of trails, the Forest is a wonderful setting for groups to get involved in a range of learning activities that combines hands-on education with ideas for active minds.

Learning at Salcey Forest is coordinated and delivered in conjunction with Acorn, our designated learning partner. Whether you are looking for a guided visit to the forest, want to learn some bushcraft skills or fancy leading your own visit, there are lots of opportunities and even some free downloadable resources available. Whatever you plan to do, please ensure you book in advance, so that we know you are coming.

We will need to inform you of any potential health and safety considerations or other conditions that may affect your plans for a forest learning experience.
