Alice Holt Visitor Centre

Alice Holt Visitor Centre


A new visitor and cycle centre for the Forestry Commission at Alice Holt Forest designed by Re-Format.

The centre houses a much needed large café area, which doubles the previous seating capacity, and a separate cycle centre providing cycle hire, maintenance and retail. The building also houses the ranger’s office and welfare facilities.

“Re-Format has been an integral part to securing the detail design of the upcoming developments at our Alice Holt woodland park. Taking an outline design through to a functional detailed level – that not only looks in keeping with the site but also is operationally fit for purpose, has not been an easy task. Their advice and knowledge has been invaluable on a number of levels, from deciding finer details such as material choices through to guidance and support on potential planning pitfalls.”
