Epping Forest is an ancient forest landscape stretching 13 miles from urban Manor Park to Epping. It is London’s largest open space and home to 50,000 ancient trees, 100 ponds, deer, wildlife and a mosaic of habitats. The Forest has provided a much valued recreation destination for Londoners for centuries, and has sites of historic interest ranging from Iron Age forts to a Tudor hunt standing and Victorian retreats.
We provide a wide range of programmes designed to focus on the rich heritage of the forest while providing a cross-curricular approach. Sessions are based from The View visitor centre, next to the beautiful, centuries-old Queen Elizabeth’s Hunting Lodge. Facilities include a classroom, toilet facilities and interactive exhibitions. The View provides the perfect gateway to exploring Epping Forest.
