Visit Epping Forest regularly for long training walks as it’s the highest point in Essex. Plenty to see with Connaught Waters and all it’s wildlife. The forest actually stretches for miles and can look quite different with the changing seasons. Fun for all the family

I'm fortunate enough to live in Epping from where it's easy to get into the wooded forest land within minutes. However, visitors to the area can approach in a number of ways. On the Underground you can walk into the forest from Leytonstone, Snaresbrook, South...More

In the persistently hot Summer of 18, just on the edge of NE London, Epping Forest is waiting for you. You don't have to go as far as Epping, join it at Walthamstow, Highams Park, Chingford and Woodford all on train lines. Great for children,...More
