Spot a Gruffalo at Dalby Forest!

You might think you’ve seen the Gruffalo at Dalby Forest before, but you haven’t seen him like this! Download the new Gruffalo Spotter app at home, then visit Dalby Forest. Follow the trail and look for clues that lead to footpoint marker posts. Point the app at them and watch mouse, fox, owl, snake and the Gruffalo himself appear before your eyes! The trail starts from Dalby Courtyard and is around two miles long. You can buy a Gruffalo Activity Kit, with an evidence collection bag, fact and activity cards and more for £3 from the Visitor Centre. Top tip: we find the Dalby Forest trails work best with our kids when we have plenty of snacks to keep them moving! Parking at Dalby Forest is £8 but entry to the Visitor Centre (with a fantastic adventure playground) and walks are free.
