Deep Level Caving: AN EXCITING ADVENTURE BUT UNFORTUNATELY WE ARE NOT ABLE TO OFFER CAVING ACTIVITIES AT THE MOMENT

Our show caverns only scratch the surface of the hidden world under the Forest. We would love to show you the extensive world beyond the public caverns. We will be posting new dates for adventure caving when they are arranged

SAVOUR THE DEPTHS OF FLAVOUR AT THE LAMPROOM CAFÉ

The Lamproom Café sits above ground as the only marker for the adventure taking place below. The Cafe will be serving delicious cakes and snacks along with teas and all your favourite coffees. Our café is another delightful discovery hidden amongst the trees of the Forest.

AS SEEN ON SCREEN

A space this unique naturally provides extraordinary magic and wonder, which is why over the years we’ve played host to the filming of numerous programmes such as His Dark Materials, Cursed, Britannia, Dr Who, Merlin, Da Vinci’s Demons, Kidnapped, Blake's Seven and many others.
