Robinswood Hill by Nathan Millar

Robinswood Hill has been the head office of Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust since 1992. The site is managed by Gloucester City Council, who work closely in partnership with Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust.

More information on the rich history of Robinswood Hill can be found on Gloucester City Council's website.

Throughout 2019 - 2020 Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust's head office was re-developed to include a new indoor cafe and visitor hub. This opened in September 2020, and a new community engagement project, Return to the Hill, was launched in January 2021. The new visitor hub will have self-guided activities for all ages to pick up and use to explore the Hill. 

Take a look at our project launch video and discover what Robinswood Hill has to offer.

An all terrain mobility scooter (Tramper) is now available for hire to explore two waymarked routes on the Hill. This must be booked in advance, please contact us for more information and to book

Currently the tramper is only available Monday - Fridays.

All visitors hiring a Tramper must become a member of Countryside Mobility, if they are not already, to ensure they are covered by insurance and have received an induction on how to safely use a Tramper the first time you hire. Choose either a 2 week (£2.50) or Annual (£10) Membership – this then allows you to use Trampers at over 50 beauty spots around the South West, including a number in Gloucestershire. Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust will normally charge a small hire fee, however as a special trial offer there will be no hire fee until January 2022.

Before you come:

  • Download the relevant form below and return by email before your visit if possible (or print, complete and bring with you if not).
  • If you are a first time user and therefore becoming a Countryside Mobility member please:
