Walk Description:

Our walk through Epping Forest starts at the northern end and takes us along woodland paths south to Chingford.

Key sights

High Beach Epping Forest visitor centre Queen Elizabeth Hunting Lodge

Our longer Explorer WALX are open to all, exploring beautiful areas in and around London. Routes are planned with breaks and the opportunity for refreshments but this isn't just a ramble; we'll encourage the good posture and motivation to push yourself as we do in all our WALX.

If you'd like to benefit from using Nordic walking poles, we advise you attend a Learn to Nordic WALX workshop. Walkers without poles or with trekking poles are very welcome.

Monthly Payment clients £10; Pre-paid Credit clients £16 - price adjusted at payment.


Time: Meet outside Epping Station (at the end of the Cnetral Line) ready to start at 10.30 am.

This is a linear walk so we will finish at Chingford Station by approximately 3.00 pm.  Chingford is on the London Overground network and links to the Victoria Line at Walthamstow Central.

Refreshments  We will have a coffee break at High Beach - cafe sells hot and cold refreshments.  There is also a good cafe and a pub at the end of the walk at the Queen Elizabeth Hunting Lodge or bring your own picinic which would be ideal in good weather.
