Epping Forest, London's largest open space, is a registered charity managed by the City of London at no cost to the public. 

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, 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.

  • The Forest covers around 6,000 acres – that’s over 3,300 football pitches – and stretches from Manor Park to just north of Epping.
  • Two thirds of the Forest has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and a Special Area of Conservation (SAC).
