Where To Spot The Gruffalo In The UK

16 June 2021

Oh Help! Oh No! It's The Gruffalo! The Gruffalo has been one of our favourite stories since little J was younger and we have followed the Gruffalo trail through Delamere Forest many times to try and find him. Over the past year several of the Gruffalo trails and orienteering have been closed however now as some restrictions have lifted there are quite a few Forestry England places in the UK where you can join in with the Gruffalo Trail. Please do check with each Forest before you visit to check opening times and temporary closures.

Gruffalo Orienteering
Gruffalo Orienteering is the perfect outdoor activity with fun for all the family. Pick up a map and certificate at the Forest's visitor centre for just £1.50 then follow the route to find the Gruffalo. 

There are twelve Gruffalo markers to find using the simple map.

The Gruffalo Sculpture


Spot A Gruffalo Sculpture
If you take a stroll in the deep dark wood, you might spot the Gruffalo and it will be good! The wooden sculptures of the Gruffalo have all been carved in to different positions so you can spot him in his different positions by visiting different locations.

  1. Cannock Chase is the closest to us so will try to make it there for the Gruffalo trail as my kids adored the book when they were younger

  4. Such a fun activity to do over the summer to get out and about without spending much money. I'm pretty sure Wendover Woods isn't too far from me x
