Increase in Epping Forest Visitors

We are pleased to see that the City of London's visitor centres in Epping Forest have seen a 15% increase in their visitor numbers.

The three centres in Epping Forest; The Visitor Centre, Queen Elizabeth’s Hunting Lodge and the Temple, taken together showed a total increase in visitor numbers of 4735 from 31,405 (same period 2010) to 36,140 which is a 15% increase.

The Epping Forest Visitor Centre is located at High Beach and is open seven days a week. Staff can answer queries about the Forest and have 'woodland gifts', soft toys, local crafts, maps, books and booklets on offer.

The Queen Elizabeth’s Hunting Lodge is open Wednesday to Sunday during the summer and Friday to Sunday in the winter as well as Bank Holidays. The upper floors provide good views over Chingford Plain and Epping Forest and you can see displays on Tudor foods, replica kitchenware, carpentry joints and costume.

The Temple in Wanstead Park is a classical garden building dating back to the 18th century.

For more information on these centres visit the City of London website.
