Alice Holt describes itself as a great day out for the family where you can walk, cycle, play or have a picnic in the woods. You can experience life in the trees with Go Ape, take a relaxing break in the cafe and finish your visit with a quiet stroll in one of the more remote parts of the forest.
Events at Alice Holt include Guided Nordic Walks, Little Explorers, Gruffalo Trail, Fungal Foray, Babes in the Wood, Buggy Fitness, Caterpillar Crafts and Magical Forest Lantern Walks. The visitor centre also has a Go Ape centre, playground, café and picnic facilities.
Lee Turner said, “Alice Holt is a very popular outdoor family attraction. Everyone is very fond of it. I know my kids and all their friends love Alice Holt and regularly go to walk round the forest and play on the wooden animal play frames.”
