Epping Forest, City of London, at The View

A self-guided indoor trail in the heart of ancient Epping Forest, just a 15 minute hop on the train from Liverpool Street.

We’ll be telling stories about how people (and cows) united and fought for the survival of Epping Forest through art activities, archives and ancient trees at The View and in our Tudor Queen Elizabeth’s Hunting Lodge.
