About Us

Enjoy a fun day out in Cheshire’s biggest woodland!

Located between Liverpool and Manchester, Delamere Forest provides a stunning setting for your next family adventure. Whether a leisurely wander through the trees, scaling the heights at Go Ape, an adventure in the deep, dark wood on the Gruffalo Spotters Trail or enjoying a family bike ride, Delamere Forest is bursting with opportunities to explore the great outdoors.

Explore the stunning landscape on a choice of three walking trails or two cycling trails. If you’re stuck for wheels why not visit the brand new Tracs cycle centre who’ll happily fix you up with a hire bike, they’ve got something to suit everybody. Be sure to visit the new eco-friendly visitor centre which is also home to the Delamere Forest Café – for all the post-fun refreshments you’ll need. 

You can become a Delamere Forest member for £40 and get free parking all year round, plus a range of discounts and benefits. You’ll also be supporting the nation’s forests. Find out more here.
