Grizedale Forest, in the heart of the Lake District, offers an unrivalled day out for everyone. Visitors can enjoy walking and cycling trails, or simply discover a quiet spot to admire the wildlife, amazing sculptures, a place to relax and enjoy some great food.
Grizedale Forest is famous for its outdoor sculptures. Since 1977 leading international artists have created sculpture in response to Grizedale Forest's unique environment, establishing the first collection of site-specific art in the UK. Now around 40 sited artworks are located across the forest, linked by the network of walking and cycling trails. The sculptures provide moments of contemplation and a special way of navigating this extraordinary landscape.
Grizedale Forest provides a perfect way to explore and discover the outdoors in The Lake District. It is one giant adventure playground - with bike shops and hire, and Go Ape high ropes course and segways – from challenging mountain biking to flying through the trees, this is your adventure playground
After lockdown, we are excited to welcome you back to our lovely forest to get some well-needed fresh air. Come visit and you can bike, walk, play, and simply ahve fun!
