There’s so much to do & see at Queenswood Country Park!

Queenswood is a fragment of the vast ancient oak wood that once stretched to the Welsh borders & beyond. It frequently reverted to the source of all estates, “the crown” (the monarch) intermittently, & changed its name from ‘Kings Wood’ to ‘Queenswood’ in the reign of Queen Elizabeth II.

What's On

We have a number of events held throughout the year here at Queenswood. See what we have going on here!

Great place to take the kids for a say out. The Gruffalo Trail is great and easy to follow, but very popular and for that reason can get very muddy. Pay for parking, but I thought the price was very reasonable, well worth a visit

Plenty of parking. Take the right change. £4 for 3 hours. Very muddy and steep in parts, but you can keep to more flat and drier paths. Sequoia trees are fab! Takeaway food from cafe. Gorgeous hot chocolate.
