What is the Dean Heritage Centre
The Dean Heritage Centre is one of Gloucestershire's leading attractions. Set across a stunning and fully interactive five acre site, the centre protects and preserves the unique history and heritage of the beautiful Forest of Dean.
With a wide range of things to do and see, including five onsite galleries exploring the history of the Forest from the Ice Age to the present day; a reconstructed Victorian cottage; a charcoal burner's camp; an adventure playground; chainsaw carving demonstrations; a variety of animals, an onsite gift shop and cafe there's always something new and exciting to interest, inspire and surprise you.
With a full programme of special events, exhibitions, art shows and educational workshops across the year, it's a great day out for all the family.
What you say...
It was wonderful to see so many little faces light up, when the "Real" gruffalo appeared.
So much work and planning put in, to make this a sucess. The woodcarvers should also be congratulated on their craftsmanship. Thanks again.
