What to wear:

A visit to Anker Wood means lots of fresh air for the whole family. As you'll mostly be outdoors it's important to dress sensibly. Long trousers teamed with t-shirts and jumpers are great for protecting legs and arms against midges, the sun and plants such as brambles and nettles. If your part of a school trip, full uniform may not be the best option as the kids may get muddy.

Please dress appropriately for the season. During summer a sun hat and sunscreen is recommended, whereas in winter a hat, gloves and scarf are perfect for keeping everyone warm while they explore. As British weather is ever changing a waterproof coat plus walking shoes or wellingtons is always recommended. Most of all it's important that you're dressed comfortably to get the most out of your visit.
