Haldon Forest Park - Forestry Commission

Haldon Forest Park - Forestry Commission

King's Road, Exeter, EX6 7XR

Haldon Forest is a Forestry Commission property on the outskirts of Exeter. It’s distance away from the bright city lights meets it’s free from most light pollution and as such the skies are fantastically dark during new moon periods. In early 2017 the park opened a self-led stargazing discovery trail. Great place for families to go and spend an evening away from the television and games console!
