We visited cannock chase in search of the gruffalo and we were really impressed by the facilities. The play park is well laid out and the kids loved the gruffalo trail. Theres plenty pieces of woodland art to keep you occupied too.

On arrival to cannock chase visitor centre we were redirected to birchley valley and advised that a visitor... More

A fantastic open space that offers many options for walkers, cyclists, mountain bikers, horse riding, bird watchers, and many other outside pursuits. Have been many, many times and never get bored. A map is recommended to get the max benefit of what is there. Maquis Drive and Birches valley have toilets, food purchase places, "Go Ape" and cycle routes -... More

Visited here with my boyfriend to explore. Found a postcode to use for the Sat Nav but the directions and the road signs were unclear and contradicting. Warning, following the sign of the antler deer can take you in circles. We finally found a car park which was free of charge, but felt like it was in the middle of... More

We travelled as a group of four and checked out the local trails at Cannock Chase. The first day we did 'The Dog' and it was really well sign posted and flowed from one part of the trail to the other very smoothly. We are moderately fit so this was OK for us. When we did 'The Monkey' the next... More

An unexpectedly large area of interesting land for wildlife,views and recreation - walking and mountain biking or picnicking and visiting places by car. Plenty of car parks - some with resonable charges The Commonwealth Cemetery and the German Cemetery were interesting and a hour and half walk led by a ranger very good - though advertising for this was only...

Some friends were talking about all the fantastic places they had been to around the world and although i have done a fair bit of travelling, Cannock Chase has to be one of my favourite places. There are plenty of marked routes of varying length for walking or bikes. As another reviewer said, if you want to see the Deer... More

The only downside was that there could of been wooden carvings of the animals ie the gruffalo and the snake ect other... More
