Aspiring Bear Grylls and budding Ray Mears types should head to The National Forest, where you can pick up basic survival skills in no time.
The National Forest is a forest in the making, transforming 200 square miles in the centre of England. It’s one of the few places that you can learn traditional woodland crafts with experts at a variety of survival schools.
As one of the leading attractions in the area, Conkers Outdoor Pursuits combines outdoor adventure and experience days with watersports and an 18-stage Assault Course Challenge (13+).
Whatever your age, the Forest Rangers can teach you a variety of skills from fire lighting to shelter building and cooking to help you survive in the wild.
If that’s not enough to whisk you back to times of old, Conkers is also home to a sensory 450 meter barefoot walk. You’re encouraged to kick off your shoes and feel the age-old sensation of walking on bark, coal, pebbles, clay and timber. Open all seasons of the year - if you dare!
