A shot through the white blooming buds of a tree, with Queen Elizabeth's Hunting Lodge and The View in the background.

Queen Elizabeth's Hunting Lodge is now a licenced venue for weddings and civil partnerships. The Grade II* listed Tudor hunt standing makes a beautifully unique and exclusive setting for these ceremonies.

The Lodge is located at:

8 Rangers Road
London E4 7QH

Your ceremony

Ceremonies can be booked to take place between 10am and 6pm.

Note: Ceremonies are not currently possible in Epping Forest itself.

The venue

Your ceremony will take place inside the Hunting Lodge, which offers capacity for up to 40 people seated, and makes for intimate ceremonies.

The Lodge is a Tudor timber-framed building dating to 1543, and with its rich oak surrounds it can be the perfect backdrop to your big day; giving a fairytale touch to proceedings on an occasion you'll cherish.

Overlooking the vast uninterrupted views of the beautiful Epping Forest it provides a rural tranquil and historic venue whilst still being moments away from trains to London and other public transport.
