Epping Forest, London's largest open space, is a registered charity managed by the City of London at little cost to the public. 

Have your say on the next 10 years of Epping Forest before September 20. Register on our Consultation site  today!

Whether you wish to escape the urban sprawl and simply unwind, or want something a little more active, Epping Forest has something for everyone.

There are numerous events throughout the year and plenty of activities to get involved in, from walking and running, and cycling to horse riding, angling, football and even golf.

There are also four Forest Centres to visit, with exhibitions, special events and friendly staff to help you find your way around the Forest.

When does Epping Forest open and close?

Epping Forest is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year – though our centres: The View, The Temple and High Beach Visitor Centre do close.

Wanstead Park also closes at dusk and reopens at dawn - as do all of our car parks.
