Salcey Forest is an oasis of nature and history only 7 miles from the centre of Northampton.

Whether you want a family day out, a chance to see the wildlife of the forest, or just to pop in for a cup of tea in these beautiful surroundings, Salcey Forest has it all.

For bird's-eye views - ascend the all-ability Tree Top Way and see Salcey from a completely different viewpoint, with fantastic views in store at the top. Be warned - you'll need a head for heights!

Hit the trails extensive trails to help you explore the forest, with three walking trails, two of which are surfaced easy-access paths. There is a 5 mile family cycle route and a 5 mile horse riding trail with a car park for horse boxes to use.
