Hatfield Forest

Hatfield forest offers a fantastic day for children of all ages to experience nature themed activities in a unique setting. The site offers 424 hectares of woodland, wood pasture and wetland areas. Hatfield Forest is perfect for discovering mini beasts, pond dipping or making amazing natural art. Children can also learn how to build dens or use a compass to explore the forest. Our superbly-equipped outdoor classroom and story circle allows a base for children to explore the habitats safely, and get the most out of their visit with us. We offer half or full day curriculum linked sessions for EYFS up to A-level.
