Epping Forest is an ancient forest landscape stretching 13 miles from urban Manor Park to Epping. It is London’s largest open space and home to 50,000 ancient trees, 100 ponds, deer, wildlife and a mosaic of habitats. The Forest has provided a much valued recreation destination for Londoners for centuries, and has sites of historic interest ranging from Iron Age forts to a Tudor hunt standing and Victorian retreats.

A fantastic programme of outdoor activities is available at Epping Forest. The programme has been adapted to adhere to government guidance to ensure that your visit is both safe and enjoyable. The programmes take places entirely outdoors and enables groups to explore and learn in nature.

From eco-art and literacy to food chains and survival skills, a wide range of workshops are available to support learning across the curriculum.
