Take in an amazing sunrise with the Dunes at Dawn walk on Saturday 1 October at 6.30am along the top of the sand dunes.

Or bring your little ones to join Mouse to explore the deep dark woods on Wednesday 28 September to meet friends like Snake, Fox, Owl, and the Gruffalo! The Gruffalo Explorer walk starts anytime between 9.30 to 10.30am, starting at Bottle Lake Forest Information Centre, 1.7 or 2.5km walk options.
