If you are uncomfortable with the idea of touching the car park payment machines, you may want to consider becoming a member. As well as supporting the forest you will receive a 12 month car park pass. Find out more.

For a quieter forest experience, we recommend planning your visit for early morning (before 10.00am) or in the evening (after 4.00pm). The forest is usually less busy on week days.

Whether you're looking to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life, or you want something more adventurous, Wyre Forest has something for everyone.

Wyre Forest offers a great day outdoors with activities to suit all. With a variety of walking, cycling, running and horse trails available, there's plenty of ways to explore the forest. With so much space, those looking for a more peaceful time can enjoy the more remote spots in the heart of the forest.

Explore the arboretum to find the unusual Whitty Pear and don't forget to refuel in our on-site cafe. Our bike hire specialists will make sure you are properly equipped for an adventure on two wheels, whilst our Go Ape course will keep the kids (and adults!) entertained.
