Honey Lane Quarters is a charming stretch of woodland and grassland in the northwest of the Forest. As the first part of Epping Forest visible from the M25, it's a popular draw for those leaving the motorway in search of fresh air and respite on their journey around London. 

Things to do in Honey Lane Quarters

  • Explore the Quarters on foot, by bike, on horseback or with your dog
  • Enjoy a picnic at the edge of the Forest
  • For a long walk, head south through Pillow Mounds to our Epping Forest Visitor Centre
  • Visit the Rifle Butts which were used as a shooting range in the 1800s
  • Pop in to the nearby Volunteer public house for a hot lunch and a cold drink
  • Head to the Big View for a breathtaking view of Lea Valley and Waltham Abbey

If picnicking in the Forest, please take care not to litter. Please note too that barbecues are prohibited under our byelaws. Our byelaws can be enforced by fine or prosecution.
