CONKERS, the award winning attraction at The Heart of the National Forest, is a unique mix of indoor and outdoor experiences to keep you and your family engaged for hours.

In the Discovery Centre there are four discovery zones designed for children and adults of all ages, over 100 interactive exhibits, the Enchanted Forest Adventure Play area with scary troll, bats and spiders, the interactive forest floor and the simulated tree top walk – a moving bridge through the skies and our exciting 4D cinema experience.

Enjoy the great outdoors and explore over 120 acres of the picturesque grounds including maturing woodland, lakes and gardens. There are 23 different outdoor activities including the 450 metre barefoot walk. Visitors can walk along sculpture trails or through a wonderful wildflower glade, try out the challenging eighteen stage activity course, climb to the top of the sky viewing tower for a treetop panorama or play in the Playdale Adventure and Twisty Towers playgrounds.

There’s also the Aerial Adventure with high and low ropes, climbing wall, 110 metre zip wire and power-fan descender (please note there is an additional charge for the Aerial Adventure activities). Please see things to do on the Conkers website.

There’s a fun packed programme of events:

•    School holiday activities - see school holidays on the Conkers website
•    Live music in the covered ampitheatre - see events on the Conkers website
•    Seasonal events included Santa’s Winter Wonderland through to Halloween and Firework Nights! - see events on the Conkers website
