After a long cold winter most of us can hardly wait for the first signs of spring and woodlands are a great place to see them. Thanks to the Woodland Trust and a new website it is now easy to find woodlands to explore.
VisitWoods.org.uk is a website where you can find almost all of the woods in the UK where you are welcome to visit. Search the interactive map to find a wood to visit, no matter who owns it.
Working with other landowners such as the Forestry Commission, National Trust, Wildlife Trusts, RSPB, local authorities and private owners, the Woodland Trust has mapped almost all woods across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
This website is part of a wider VisitWoods project. The project’s aim is to inspire people to discover woods and the many benefits they have to offer.
VisitWoods is a partnership project, led by the Woodland Trust which receives funding from Natural England (through their Access to Nature programme, part of the Big Lottery Fund Changing Spaces Programme), the Forestry Commission England, Forestry Commission Scotland, Scottish Natural Heritage and People’s Postcode Lottery.
