Part of the largest area of ancient woodland in the Severn Vale, Highnam Woods has managed rides and glades, dead wood and other key habitat features. In spring nightingales return to breed amongst the cuckoo flowers, wood anemones and bluebells. In summer rare Tintern spurge can be seen growing on bare ground along some of the paths. In winter, watch resident woodland birds on the feeders at the hide, or search for the elusive hawfinch or lesser spotted woodpecker.
BY CAR: Highnam Woods is close to the M5, to the West of Gloucester, around 2.5hrs drive from London.
PUBLIC TRANSPORT: Gloucester station is on a direct line from London Paddington, with the site a little less than 5m from there. We recommend taxi travel from the station, although buses between Gloucester and Hereford pass close to the woods. Unfortunately, public transport links for the return journey late at night are not so strong. If you are interested in shared travel for your event, please let us know at checkout.
