Gruffalo Sculptures at Westonbirt National Arboretum

If you venture into the deep dark wood you may bump into the Gruffalo, the Gruffalo's Child and other characters from the book too!

Each sculpture has been carved in a different position - can you find them all?

The easiest route to the Gruffalo sculptures in the Old Arboretum is to head up Mitchell Drive and take the first left towards Acer Glade. Keep straight through Acer Glade and at the T junction turn right towards Loop Walk. At the next T junction turn left and the Gruffalo sculpture should be in sight. The other sculptures are close by in a loop. Please ask for more help and a map at the Welcome Building on arrival. 

Please note that the majority of sculptures are located in our 'dog free' area in the Old Arboretum, so dogs are not permitted on this trail. If you would like to see the Gruffalo sculptures but are visiting with a dog, please head to Silk Wood, where you can find the Gruffalo's Child. The Gruffalo's child is located on Barn Walk.
