Guess Who's Lost in the Deep Dark Wood

The sculpture of the Gruffalo in the Old Arboretum has always been a favourite with families.

We are thrilled to announce that Gruffalo has been joined by beautiful sculptures of Fox, Owl, Snake, Squirrel and, of course, Mouse, to make up Westonbirt’s very own Gruffalo Wood.

Carved from Forestry Commission sustainable oak, and exquisitely painted, the sculptures are a huge attraction for young families. After meeting the Gruffalo, families can explore the arboretum and enjoy our amazing collection of trees.


Find the Gruffalo and his friends in the new Gruffalo Wood in the Old Arboretum.
