We'd had a successful walk the day before with our 2 year olds, but this was too much for them. There was one climbing frame that kept them busy for ages, but little else. Needs more in the way of refreshments& facilities

Really great place to take your family for a Sunday arvo stroll. Loads for kids to play on and beautiful surroundings only downside is car park is quite pricey now.

Really enjoyed this walk through the forest and the information boards give a flavour of the night in 1980 when US airmen saw what they felt was a UFO. The trail is well signposted and takes about an hour and a half,

We visited Rendlesham Forest purely to see the UFO trail. Very impressed. Very well signed. You really can’t get lost. Do a bit of research before you go and it’ll all make sense. That said there are plenty of explanatory signs along the way.

The trail is 3 miles long so you could easily do it in an hour. But allow for two hours to read all the information panels and to stop and appreciate the beauty of the forest.

You can walk around the forest at all times. But please note that the main car park will be gated off in the evening (8pm in summer).
