Marlow Common is a an area of woodland near Marlow town center that makes a perfect place for a walk and play for children of all ages. The area was an old WW1 training ground so there are lots of bunkers for exploring as well rope swings, dens and an abundance of fallen logs. There isn’t an exact path to follow but its really easy to make your own circular route of the right distance for your kids without getting lost.

Car park means small ish muddy lay by area where a few cars can park!
