The Gruffalo celebrates its 25th birthday this year! To celebrate Forestry England have launched a brand new family activity trail at Haughmond Hill.

Its been 25 years since the award-winning picture book was published, and so we invite you to join us in the deep dark woods for an adventure you won’t forget.

Join in the festivities and celebrate the Gruffalo’s birthday on an exciting new trail experience as we host a big party in the forest.

Follow the trail from the visitor car park out into the woods, work together to search for the missing party items and help us pick the perfect present for the Gruffalo. Along the way you’ll get to enjoy plenty of fun and games whilst also learning about the plants and wildlife that call the forest home.

Don’t forget to pick up an activity pack for just £4 from Haughmond Hill Café (during opening hours) which is packed with fun things to do on your party adventure.

Warm up warm and get your little ones outside this winter – help us give the Gruffalo a birthday to remember!

"🏰✨ Dive into the heart of Shrewsbury's Castle Quarter – the epicenter of history and grandeur! 🏰 Home to four of the town's largest historic treasures – Shrewsbury Castle, Library, Prison, and Train Station. 

Did you know Shrewsbury Castle's foundations were laid in 1083 by the 1st Earl of Shrewsbury, Roger de Montgomery? 
Montgomery, a cousin of William the Conqueror, earned this castle and more as a thank-you for his aid during the Norman conquest.

From royal stronghold to a 16th-century transformation, Shrewsbury Castle has quite the story. Now, it stands majestically, housing the Shropshire Regimental Museum. 👑🏰 Ready to step into the pages of history?
