There are a lot of ways to go about exploring Delamere Forest. The question is, which one will you choose first?
When it’s the calm that calls, wide sandstone pathways invite you through the forest on an idyllic stroll.
You’ll pass lakes where birds flash across the water, amble under canopies of mature trees, and be welcomed by open spaces covered in lush grasses.
Go Ape at Delamere
If it’s a slightly more adrenaline-packed adventure you’re after, Go Ape is located within Delamere Forest and is the perfect challenge for any thrill seeker.
Wander across ropes stretching along the treetops and balance over wobbly bridges for a day in the forest you won’t be forgetting anytime soon.
Looking for something between the two? We think you and the whole family will love a ride on a segway.
Rumble and twist your way over dirt paths without a pedal to push and you’ll have done all the exploring without even breaking a sweat.
Exercise in the fresh air
The forest offers some of the loveliest trails to get your running shoes out for.
So loosen up those limbs and get the water bottle at the ready, because this time getting a little sweaty is all part of the fun.
Why not work up towards taking part in the Saturday parkrun at the forest?
It’s a great way to meet new people who share a like-minded love of running in nature.
Lovely people and some delicious food
There’s always something new and exciting to keep an eye out for at Delamere Forest. They often host concerts where the likes of Paul Weller and Tom Jones have previously performed, so you can be sure to find an artist you love.
And to finish off the day at Delamere, why not stop by the forest café to pick up some delicious food?
Sit in and enjoy the atmosphere of a family-run business or take it to go and set yourself up for a great little picnic.
It’s likely you won't need any additional inspiration to be making another trip here after you've experienced the forest firsthand, but if you did, a chat with the lovely staff at the café and a wonderful brownie is sure to guarantee your quick return.
