    This ancient forest is famous for its oak trees which once supplied timber for navy ships. Whether you have come to walk, cycle, picnic, or see the wildlife, there is something at Alice Holt for everyone who loves the countryside.

    From the A31 turn off at Farnham onto the A325 going south. Stay on the A325 for appromimately three miles then turn left following signs to Alice Holt Forest. The nearest station is at Bentley. From here you can walk through the forest to the Forest Centre along public rights of way. Alternatively take the train to Farnham and catch a bus to the Forest.

    Walking to Health at Alice Holt provides short, safe and sociable walks for people to get out into the fresh woodland air, stretch their legs, de-stress and increase their physical activity.

    Until the end of August the evening walks start at 6.30pm from the Education Centre and last up to 1 1/2 hours. These walks will be a little more strenuous and take in some of the more challenging forest trails.

    From September to the end of November the walks meet at the Cafe at 10am and last about an hour.

    Don’t forget to wear suitable footwear to walk along the forest trails and wear clothing for the weather conditions. Children under 16 years must be accompanied by an adult.
