Howe Park Wood has always been a fantastic location for outdoor learning activities. The woodland setting is ideal for studying comparative habitats, specific genera and for generally experiencing the natural world.

Charges: £5 per child for a half day, £7.50 per child for a full day, maximum of 30 children per session.

    Howe Park Wood - park.jpg

    Howe Park is probably the woodland mentioned in the Domesday Survey of 1086. Parts of it may be rare surviving fragments of the 'wildwood' that covered the whole of lowland Britain after the last Ice Age, 6-11,000 years ago.

    Refreshments
    There is a café at Howe Park Wood serving cakes, drinks and cold foods.
