Membership enquiries must be managed in a different way now that Bedgebury has reopened...

Forestry England has made a number of important changes which may affect your experience when visiting Bedgebury. As these changes may alter from day to day, please read the information here before you visit so that you know what to expect on arrival. Membership terms and conditions can be found here.
In order to ensure the safety of all employees on site, the Visitor Information Office will remain closed until further notice and the Friends’ team must continue to work from home.
We are therefore asking you to manage your membership in a different way. We hope that you will support us during this complex period.
  • Please renew your membership before you visit Bedgebury.
  • If you visit with a lapsed membership, you will need to re-join online whilst on site by clicking here, or you will need to pay day admission to exit the site. Day admission payments made to Forestry England are non-refundable.
  • Please get in touch before you visit with your membership queries by e-mailing:
  • If you have a Gift Certificate to redeem, please e-mail 
  • If you wish to renew your membership, and you don’t have a Gift Certificate to redeem, please renew online.
  • To speak to the membership team, please e-mail detailing your enquiry and offering a suitable telephone number so someone can call you.
  • The Friends’ normal telephone number will remain unmanned throughout this period, and messages will not be taken. However, you can call 01580 879820 while the site is open for general visitor information.

Thank you for your support.
