Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler's best-loved book, The Highway Rat, will be brought to life with Beechenhurst's latest forest trail.

Offering fun for the whole family in the Forest of Dean, The Highway Rat activity trail is the latest attraction at Beechenhurst and is set to delight visitors until autumn 2018.

The exciting activity trail offers the chance for visitors to go on a journey with The Highway Rat and the book’s characters, with plenty to see and do along the way.

Perfect for some outdoor exploring, the one-mile trail encompasses themed panels, with the chance to spot characters and engage with nature, such as collecting rubbings.

There are free downloadable trails online, while activity packs can be purchased from the Beechenhurst café and include a leaflet, extra activity sheet, mask, stickers, a pencil and a crayon.
