The forest itself is home to High Lodge Visitors Centre which offers extensive walking and cycling trails, Go Ape tree top challenge, Segway hire and children’s play areas. There is a café and a barbecue area at the centre or, why not take a picnic to enjoy. Cycle hire is available including electric bikes (bookable), which are ideal for those who haven’t ventured on a cycle for a while to enjoy the beautiful woodland trails. High Lodge also holds regular seasonal attractions, such as music concerts and other events throughout the year.
The nearby market town of Thetford, 7 miles, is home to the Dad’s Army Museum and is a must see for any fans of the show. Other local attractions include The Dessert Rat Memorial, The Charles Burrell Museum and Thetford Priory.
A little further afield, Bressingham Steam Museum and Gardens offers nearly 20 acres of tranquil and beautifully laid out gardens to explore, along with working locomotives to ride on whilst enjoying the scenery. Or, why not have a day out at Banham Zoo which will appeal to all the family, with lots of animals to see including rare tigers, snow leopards, giraffes and the ever popular meerkats. Historic Bury St Edmunds, the fine city of Norwich, cosmopolitan Cambridge and the vibrant town of King’s Lynn all offer great days out. Shop, pub and restaurant 300 yards
