Formerly a royal forest, Epping Forest is a 6,118-hectare ancient woodland located in the border between Essex and northeast London. It stretches from the Front Gate to Epping, or an approximate length of 12 miles. The area is quite narrow at 2.5 miles from east to west at its widest point.

Considered as the People’s Forest, the Epping Forest boasts of woodlands, heaths, grasslands, rivers, ponds and bogs. Visitors love coming to the area to enjoy mountain biking, horse riding, orienteering, rambling, walking and many more. Most of the area has been declared as a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a Special Area of Conservation due to its age and the range of habitat found there. Tourists coming in to the area may visit any of its three visitor centres: the Epping Forest Gateway, Queen Elizabeth’s Hunting Lodge and Butler’s Retreat: The High Beach and the Temple in Wanstead Park.
