Where to go in Epping Forest

There are four Forest centres to visit in Epping Forest, which are great starting points when exploring the Forest - with maps, leaflets, history, helpful staff and more.

For more information on each centre, including opening hours, what's on and travel directions, please see:

Please note that Queen Elizabeth's Hunting Lodge and The View will now be closed on Mondays.

For more things to do, see our Events page. And for more places in the Forest to discover, you can explore our Where To Go pages!

Epping Forest products

We are now offering a range of new products, including goods and produce made in the Forest itself. All of these products are available to purchase at The View, and our calendars are available at all our centres.

Our official Epping Forest 2016 calendar contains 12 stunning images of the Forest, highlighting its beauty and wildlife throughout the seasons.

You can buy venison joints, sausages, burgers and diced meat from our responsibly-reared and -managed herd at Theydon Bois Deer Sanctuary.

And we are also offering 'Swedish Candles', upright logs that make perfect, long-lasting campfires, and which are all cut from our responsibly-forested trees.
