You may wish to discover the area's history with a trip to the Dean Heritage Centre. It has five onsite galleries exploring the history of the Forest from the Ice Age to the present day; a reconstructed Victorian cottage; a charcoal burner's camp; an adventure playground; daily chainsaw carving demonstrations; a variety of animals, an onsite gift shop and a newly refurbished café so plenty to see and do.
Clearwell Caves is one of Britain's most complex and oldest mine workings; dating back well over 4,500 years where you can explore nine atmospheric caverns with an ancient and intriguing past or how about spending some time riding a steam train through the forest or taking a cruise down the River Wye.
If you're feeling brave and adventurous Go Ape! needs to go on your 'to do' list. If you love long walks and peaceful surroundings the Sculpture Trail is well worth a visit along with the Cyril Hart Arboretum and then how about refreshments at the Speech House Hotel, a former 17th century hunting lodge which hosted the "Court of the Speech"; a parliament for the Verderers and Free Miners managing the forest, game, and mineral resources of the area.
If twitching is your thing then a visit to Symonds Yat Rock is a must! A viewpoint for peregrine falcons and the site of an Iron Age hill fort. The area was also used as a film lcoation for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1. And if film locations are of interest, Puzzlewood is a magical and mystical place just 5 miles away and used on the set of BBC's Merlin, Dr Who and a recent 3D film Jack the Giant Slayer starring Ewan McGregor.
