Gruffalo Packages

Come and meet the Gruffalo & friends at Colin Glen Forest Park. With our fantastic Gruffalo packages you can bring your school/youth group or enjoy a birthday party with friends. Explore our nature Trails with our Park Ranger along the Gruffalo Trail and onto our beautiful Fairy Glen. Relax in the Education Room for some story telling and age appropriate Arts & Crafts with our party hosts. You are also free to bring your own snacks & decorations or order something from Mona’s Cafe (onsite).

So don’t delay – take a stroll through the deep dark woods and visit the characters from the much loved picture book written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffer.  You can then follow the Gruffalos footsteps to meet the silly old fox, owl and snake on the way to an amazing 8 foot tall Gruffalo – complete with knobbly knees, turned out toes and a poisonous wart on the end of his nose. The trail will take approximately 20 mins to get to the Gruffalo (depending on how many photos and selfies you take at each sculpture) and then you can sit for a moment or two and take in the beauty of the forest next to the river, before a comfortable stroll back down to the visitors centre, where you can grab a nice cup of tea or coffee. Before you leave, call in and visit our Gruffalo Shop.
