Tourist Attractions In The Forest Of Dean, Enjoy The Forest, this page is for those worthy of a mention. The biggest attraction is the miles of ancient woodland to explore, either on foot or by car.
My preference for a free day out is a circular walk, with breaks for taking photographs of scenery or wildlife if you are in the right place at the right time. Accompanied with a pick-nick and drink as required.
