Tourist Information

Things to see & do in Epping

Steeped in history, character and green spaces, this corner of Essex has all the right ingredients for a short break – whether you’re looking to embrace the great outdoors, soak up some royal heritage, step back in time, or enjoy the café culture and retail therapy.

Epping Forest District’s location makes it an ideal visitor destination, and its London Underground connections make it perfect for day trips. Both Epping Forest and the River Lea provide direct green links from London meaning visitors can choose to arrive on foot or by bike.

For a great day in the countryside, head into Epping Forest and call in on Queen Elizabeth's Hunting Lodge or discover the delights of the Essex Way beginning outside Epping Station on the Central Line. Lee Valley Regional Park offers much for the leisure visitor and Lee Valley Park Farms and Ashlyns Farm at North Weald are popular family days out.

Greensted’s 11th century church is the oldest wooden church in the world whilst at Copped Hall, Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream was first performed. Combine your visit with lunch in the leafy market towns of Epping.
