The Plotter's Forest at Raby Castle

Discover your inner rebel! The Plotters’ Forest offers a thrilling mix of challenge, discovery and intrigue for all ages.

NEW Bear Hunt Trail for 2023!

Enter through the towering gateway and disappear into the dense woodland. Explore ground-level forest trails, then climb to high walkways and towers. Become part of a world of magic and mischief: create a cacophony on outdoor musical instruments and match pairs on our giant memory game, or strike a Plotters’  Portrait pose and cause chaos with our spinning signposts.

The Plotter's Forest

A world of magic and mischief

Visitors young and old will love getting lost amongst exhilarating views, sky-high turrets and treetop tunnels, before spreading out on stargazing decks and slipping down slides. Send your fellow plotters coded messages through the Talking Tubes, and spot enemies in the Mischief Mirrors. And for the very smallest rebels, there’s a dedicated toddler area: think mini turrets, climbing equipment, slides and a chalkboard for drawing secret squiggles.

Exhilarating views, sky-high turrets and treetop tunnels

For centuries, Raby Castle has been home to men and women who stood up for their beliefs and changed the course of history. Plus those who weren’t so lucky and ended up in big trouble.
