Outwoods, Leicestershire

The Outwoods in spring

The Outwoods is a 40 hectare ancient wood and visitor attraction overlooking Loughborough and the Soar Valley in Leicestershire. It has rare rock outcrops, many species of woodland plants and substantial wildlife, and therefore it has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest. Situated within Charnwood Forest the Outwoods stands on some of the oldest exposed rocks in Britain, being formed in the pre-Cambrian era.

The Outwoods is open all year round and the car park and toilets are open from approximately 7am until dusk. Adjacent to the Outwoods is the smaller Jubilee Wood and close by is Beacon Hill.
