The Great Brownsea Storybook Adventure trail

Once upon a time on an island in Poole Harbour, legends were being challenged.

See things from a different point of view as you uncover new twists to old tales on this adventurous trail for 2017. You'll meet up with familiar characters and some new ones and complete fun activities along the way like creating music for the Pied Piper or helping to regrow Rapunzel's hair.

For the more curious minds and if you have the time (2.5- 4 hrs), the red trail plus bonus blue trail will take you right across Brownsea Island where you will discover hidden places off the beaten track.

For shorter legs and or with less time, you will find plenty to do on the red trail which will take you between 1- 2 hours.

The main requirement of the trail is to have loads of fun and a great day out on Brownsea Island.  We are asking for a suggested donation of £2 per trail, suitable for age groups 3-11yrs, although many older children and adults have been enjoying it too.

You can head up to our visitor centre and pick up a Storybook Trail there or choose from one of our other trails such as Coastal Creatures Uncovered, our infamous Tree Climbing trail or you can just find your way to our natural play area, designed by our Rangers and perfect for kids of all ages looking for adventure.
