Owned and managed primarily by Forestry England, Leigh Woods is a beautiful SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest) woodland and National Nature Reserve with an amazing history. It is by far the largest block of woodland in the Bristol area. The variety of woods, glades and wide sunny paths encourage a richness of wildlife and are home to many rare and unique species. We have lovely new seating inside the our Green Barn suitable for a double school group to have lunch, or for hosting a birthday party, or for sitting comfortably to listen to a mini lecture by one of our visiting experts!
At Leigh Woods we offer a wide range of curriculum linked programmes for schools (EYFS/KS1 and KS2), as well as woodland themed birthday parties, family fun and bushcraft, expert guided Walks and Talks and fortnightly pre-school learning together sessions.
