History at it's best
Jan 2020
We have been visiting the Queen Elizabeth hunting lodge for tens of years with then our young son now 20.
They organise lots of events throughout the year with historical facts in mind. And the building brings with the staff the past to life.

They don't make building the same anymore!

Queen Elizabeth's Hunting Lodge, within Epping Forest, is a must for those who love history (especially the Tudors) and can't afford to pay too much (entry is free). This lodge, which is accessible by bus and overground train, spans three floors (please note, it didn't appear to have any lift access. Visitors go up and down a couple flights of stairs).

The assistant that worked there was amazing, with her providing helpful hints as to what to look out for and a fact sheet (providing extra information). This included looking at the differences between the 'simpler' servants quarters to the more elaborate quarters of the 'higher ranks.'

When I was about to leave, this assistant was able to provide more information about the house, including the type of wood used to construct it and the foundations (or lack of). I was very impressed with her knowledge and enthusiasm about the building.

There were a couple of child friendly spots, including a dress up area. However, I think the adults would better appreciate the history of the building.

Half term visit
Oct 2019 • Family
We recently visited the Hunting Lodge with our kids over half term and it was a lovely afternoon out. Weather stayed dry for us and we had a nice lunch in the pub next door. Will be visiting again soon.

Step back In time! A genuine Tudor building with original oak beams.
Oct 2019
Step inside and you will find a banquet set out on a large oak table complete with a boar’s head, roasted game birds, loaves of bread and fruits of the forest. An Inglenook fireplace with logs aglow!
Look out through the leaded light windows across the meadow to the forest beyond. Spot the two deer grazing on the lawn.Climb up the oak staircase to large rooms with views out across the surrounding countryside. We were privileged to rehearse for The Giant Performance held under the old oak trees. Singing there was a magical experience and one could only wonder what it must have been like to hear minstrels entertaining Queen Elizabeth I and her courtiers after a hunt.

Visited for the first time although I have known the place was there for years!

Well worth a visit as it is a very old building with history.

Hidden history in London
Sep 2019 • Couples
We’ve lived in London for many decades. Decided to explore Epping Forest. Thanks to the lady at the Lakeside diner (South Woodford side of the Forest), who guided us towards the Hunting Lodge at Chingford. Free entry. Some Tudor history thanks to its knowledgeable volunteers. A must visit for tourists interested in off the beaten track London.
