Welcome to The National Forest by Bus

The National Forest is one of England’s most ambitious environmental projects. Across parts of Leicestershire, Derbyshire and Staffordshire, 200 square miles are being transformed, blending ancient woodland with new planting to create a new national Forest. There is a wealth of choice for great days out or short breaks with bustling attractions, gentle walking and brilliant activities.

Over 8 million trees have been planted, trebling the woodland cover. The ultimate goal is for woodland to cover around a third of the Forest area to link the ancient forests of Charnwood and Needwood.
