Carved Creature Hunt At Hainault Forest

Event Image
Join us on a family-friendly hunt for carved statues in the forest. What will we find hiding in the woods?

Deep in the ancient woodland of Hainault Forest, carvings are hidden among the trees.

Grab a spotter sheet and head into the woods on a guided hunt for carved statues. Can you find the troll under the bridge, the deer in the tree tops or dragons hiding in the canopy?

This walk is suitable for the whole family.

Booking in advance is essential. Please email [email protected] to reserve your space.
