Fungi foray

Can you spot a Fly Agaric or a maybe a Destroying Angel, beautiful but deadly? Join our expert from the Dorset Fungus Group on this delightful romp across Brownsea in search of some fascinating fungi.

  • Booking essential

Be entertained by intriguing tales that accompany the fungi as you wander through the woodland. At this time of year, there is usually an array of unusual fungus that emerges from the undergrowth.

Afterwards enjoy some tasty mushrooms on toast and a hot beverage to warm your toes in our harbour fronted café. Then it's back on the National Trust vessel to Sandbanks.
