Large enough to welcome numerous visitors, and varied enough to cater for all. The forest sound trail had the children (all ages) engaged, whilst the climbing frames and various play areas were large enough and of good quality. BBQ areas attracted larger family groups. Would...More

We were taken here by our relatives who live an hour distance and it was worth the ride. What a hidden gem. The smell of the pinetrees, the scale of the place with a wide variety of activities for children of all age and sizes....More

Visited on the hottest day ever! Bizarre parking as didn't know which area was best/closest. As with a similar park near us you pay on exit and it can be pricey but then you don't have to pay to walk round, visit cafe, go on...More

Thought Thetford Forrest would be a good place for a dog walk whilst on holiday. The walk was lovely, well signposted and very pretty. However I was not impressed by the parking charges, then the additional charge for a map, or by the grumpy lady...More

We visited the park with our 1 year old, whilst on a long weekend break. She had the best day and was absolutely exhausted from all of her exploring. Highlights had to be the sound trail, discovering all of the musical instruments hidden away in...More

Great venue, extremely well organised with a fantastic atmosphere, first Thetford concert and would definitely book again. Gary was fantastic not to sure about his support act, sounded like a mediocre karaoke singer but didn’t spoil the main event.
