The Gruffalo Party Trail at Cardinham Woods



Next dates

The Gruffalo is turning 25! To celebrate, everyone is invited to take part in a brand-new forest adventure.

The interactive family trail features all sorts of party-themed activities and games, along with fun facts to teach you about life in the forest for the Gruffalo and other creatures.

Follow the trail around Cardinham Woods to help find the missing party items to give the Gruffalo a birthday to remember. Search for balloons, pine cones, apples and the Gruffalo himself, and complete fun activities and rubbings as you go along.

Get the party started with a Gruffalo Party Trail pack

Pick up your pack for just £4 from the Ranger's Office, packed with fun things to do on your party adventure.

Inside you’ll find:

  • kraft bag to colour in
  • party headband to wear
  • party trail activity leaflet
  • stickers
  • pencil and crayon
  • keepsake sew-on Gruffalo Party patch

The activity packs cost £4 and can be purchased from the Ranger's Hut which is open 9.30am - 3.30pm on weekends, and 9.30am - 11.30am on weekdays.

The trail is aimed at children aged 3-9 but can be enjoyed by the whole family. It should take children around an hour to complete, which leaves time to explore other areas of the forest and the play area.
