Good for an active day out! You can get here by train, about an hour from London to Bentley Station.

On the plus side, it's a pleasant area which seems to have been well planned and well maintained. It is nice to walk round, especially as there are lots of level paths and few muddy bits (in summer, anyway!). So it's a nice destination if you want a compact dose of countryside with easily accessible cafe and toilets. On the... More

Had a trip to Birdworld with friends and was going to have our picnic in Alice Holt, glad we decided to have it in Birdworld before we left. Last time I visited Alice Holt was in the early 80's, was amazed that they now charge (expensive) for parking and that you can't drive down to the pond anymore, very disappointing.

My family and I love Alice Holt. Plenty of parking (however not cheap) Great walks with plenty of attractions on the way round to please little walkers. Lots of places to stop to picnic, but also a nice little café at the entrance. Loo's always looking clean and lots of them. The newly renovated children's play area is very nice.... More

All children and accompanying adults had a great day, the kids loved hunting for the gruffalo. Great playground area with lots of climbing frames. Very quite coach trip home with nearly all kids sleeping or too exhausted to move !! Will be going back with the dog and rest of family

Great for an afternoon stroll or bike ride, and there are plenty of kids adventure things to do or just to get lost in the woods for an afternoon.

Have been going to Alice Holt Forest for years. Had four boys which needed to run off a bit of energy and now they have grown Husband and I love to walk there. It has changed over the last few years - got more environmentally friendly but is still great. When my sons were younger went on couple of their... More

On my first visit I grumbled about the car park fees. On reflection it is very good value for a day out. There are plenty of routes for walkers and cyclists. I have visited several times with my grandchildren and they all love it. Being able to run through the trees and play is so simple but enjoyed by them... More

Alice Holt Forest has been carefully managed over the l years. It is an environment in which the natural world is allowed to grow and thrive alongside the many visitors that turn up every weekend through out the year. There are trails, walks and bikes, but off the beaten track plants, trees and animals can live and grow relatively undisturbed.... More
