Conkers is a visitor centre with outdoor and indoor attractions located in the heart of The National Forest. Customers can start their adventure in the outdoor National Forest grounds, where a miniature railway, adventure playground and treetop viewing platform await discovery among maturing woodlands and gardens. Thrill-seekers can try the assault course, and those who prefer to keep their feet firmly on the ground can opt for a sensory journey on the barefoot walk. Indoors, over 100 interactive exhibits demonstrate the workings of British woodlands over four seasonal zones. The enchanted forest play zone can capture the imagination of little ones even on a rainy day, and the simulated treetop walk transports visitors through the moving forest canopy to the mines and caves beyond. Why not experience the 4D Cinema too. A selection of eateries are on site for hungry visitors, from the casual coffee shop and kiosks to refined indoor and outdoor restaurants.
Great family day out. Lots for the kids to do.
Had a fantastic day at Conkers with my daughter and grandsons. Everything inside and out was really good. We all loved the train and the play area was the best we have ever been to. It is well worth a visit and we shall certainly return!

We've been to Conkers many times over the last 10-12 years and loved it. Really disappointed on this last visit - several activities were worn or broken. They need to spend money repairing existing activities, as well as developing new ones.
Absolutely brilliant! We’ve been twice and loved it both times. Plenty to do, but definitely take a picnic as you can go back to the car to fetch it. Also take a towel for the bare foot walk 👌🏻
Great place during the school holidays x
Four grandaughters 3 to 14 all love this place and the freedom it gives they turn into friendly children instead of rival sisters
Great place for kids and adults. so much to do not enough time.
We had a fantastic day, there is something for everyone to enjoy from 3 year olds up to adults. A really fun filled day :-)
so much more than you think to fill out your day.
Front line staff need to be more friendly and informative re set up and how you book etc
Restaurant needs more than chips burgers etc
